TEDxGreenville broke ground in 2010 as South Carolina’s first independently organized TED event ( After the tremendous success and enthusiasm resulting from the sold-out, inaugural event at CU-ICAR, we took the 2011 event to a whole new level of thought-provoking, energy-filled fun that will "Inspire Our Future."

TEDxGreenville 2011 was hosted at The Peace Center’s renowned Gunter Theatre and Amphitheatre in the heart of downtown Greenville on the day and night of March 18, 2011. TEDxGreenville represents a unique opportunity for companies and non-profits to meet and build relationships with the Upstate’s top thinkers and doers in creative and interactive ways only possible at a TEDx event.
