Held on February 23rd with 25 speakers, TEDxYale 2013 is themed "Solve for y." As a theme, “Solve for y” challenges our speakers to do two things: explain their unique “y,” the key ingredient to their ambition and inspiration, and tell us “why” it is significant. We’re looking for speakers with both extraordinary work and extraordinary purpose. The “y,” as opposed to other variables, also references the speakers’ common ground, Yale.
