Architecting the Invisible: Creating a Culture of Innovation

Greg Horowitt’s mission is to promote the promiscuity of ideas as a way to foster innovation. Based on the understanding that “thinking plus feeling equals believing”, and the knowledge that our belief system underlies our decision process, the idea of innovation seem more accessible.

Drawn from his first hand experience of designing, implementing, and monitoring innovation ecosystems from more than a dozen regions around the world, Greg explains the 7 Rules of the Rainforest, where chaos is rewarded and ideas run wild.

TEDxSanDiego 2014 is a Wrap!

Thanks to our speakers, performers, staff, partners and 1,300 attendees for making TEDxSanDiego 2014 such an amazing, and sold out, success! The day’s program brought people to their feet in applause, caused lots of laughter, and at some points left few dry eyes in the house.

Our partner experiences were incredible, and the 20 companies lining Innovation Alley dazzled the crowd with a number of San Diego’s most innovative products and new technologies.

Having rested a bit over the holidays, the TEDxSanDiego team is already hard at work crafting a new theme, program and experience for 2015.

Stay tuned for announcements through out the year!

What Attendees Say About TEDxSanDiego

The entire experience was professional from start to finish, from the registration desk to the seating to the experiences and, of course, especially the talks!

While all the speakers and experiences were awesome in showing how the world is using technology, entertainment, and design to further advance the world, bring healing, and inspire each other, it was really the community that was the most inspirational for me.

I was inspired and moved and began to care for myself in small ways after last year’s event. Because of those changes, I know I have been better able to contribute to the world, whether my work or my family or other activities.

Countdown to TEDxSanDiego 2015


What is TEDx

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSanDiego, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSanDiego event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
