TEDxAustin is proud to bring TED’s movement of “ideas worth spreading” to a city brimming with its own “ideas worth sharing”. Austin is a thriving hub of extraordinary thinkers and doers -- people who initiate and ignite imaginative and innovative ideas, collaborating and connecting to lead the world forward. We design and create a thoughtful experience at the local, national and international levels; supporting a forum in which other forward-thinking, action-oriented individuals can share ideas and bring meaningful change to our community and beyond.

In 2013 we look to transcend those things that stand in the way of our best selves as individuals and as a collective. To surpass limitations. To embrace that which we most fear, and in doing so weaken its hold. This year we celebrate the spirit of FearLess.

In our fourth year of this well-received event, we look forward to exploring all the facets of FearLess with our speakers, performers, and totally immersive experience. To learn to Fear Less. And perhaps, to actually fear fear less.

You are invited to join us in person or via livestream. We truly hope you do.
