In 2018, TEDxPeachtree and TEDxAtlanta merged to become the new TEDxAtlanta, one of the region’s largest and most established TED affiliates. The annual TEDxAtlanta mainstage event and other experiences throughout the year are independently organized under license from TED by an all-volunteer team led by entrepreneur and TEDxPeachtree founding member Jacqui Chew. TEDxAtlanta events are produced under the auspices of Ideas into Action LLC, a Georgia-registered nonprofit whose mission is to amplify local ideas globally and global ideas locally to propel communities to action. Since 2009, dozens of speaker alumni from TEDxAtlanta and TEDxPeachtree have been selected by TED and featured on TED.com to a global audience. For more information, visit www.TEDxAtlanta.com
