TEDxGreenville was the first independently organized TEDx event in South Carolina. It all started in 2010 when a diverse, passionate group of TED enthusiasts from around the community came together with the singular goal of bringing an educational and inspirational TED-like experience to Upstate residents.

After many months of hard work and more than a few late night planning and brainstorming sessions, TEDxGreenville 2010 launched to a sold-out crowd at CU-ICAR on March 5. The result: a brain-teasing, inspiration-filled, day-long event unlike anything Greenville has ever experienced… and TEDxGreenville was born.

Now in its fourth year, the TEDxGreenville movement is igniting passions and building bridges like never before, while highlighting the incredible people and organizations that make the Upstate of South Carolina one of the best places to live on the planet. Yep, we said it.
