TEDxCLE was organized by Clevelanders Hallie Bram and Eric Kogelschatz in an effort to bring Cleveland innovation, development, and positive change to the world.

Cleveland's first, official TEDx event, TEDxCLE, took place on Friday, February 26th at The Capitol Theatre in the Gordon Square Arts District. At TEDxCLE, TEDTalks video and live speakers, spanning topics such as health care, urban revitalization, alternative energy, and product development, were shared to spark deep discussion and connection amongst speakers and attendees alike.

As members of the TEDxCLE community, we all share one common trait. Curiosity. We all seek great ideas. We all want to be inspired. And we all choose to create and cultivate big ideas right here, in Cleveland. That curiosity is what led us to planning TEDxCLE.

Thank you to all of the local businesses that have made this event possible:

Adcom Communications - Without your donation of Audio and Visual support it would not be possible for us to make videos of all speeches available after the event.

Phoenix Coffee - Who has donated some of their services to TEDxCLE so that we could provide breakfast to everyone in attendance today.

Xacto Signs - For providing this amazing sign

Marcus Thomas - For providing the financial support to rent the Capitol Theatre and the creation of the TEDxCLE posters in the lobby and programs
