REDDING, Calif. -

TEDx is coming to Redding this weekend. What is TEDx? It stands for technology, entertainment and design.

On Thursday afternoon, one of the speakers, Andy Stoll, gave a brief presentation to the Redding Rotary Club.

TEDx is an opportunity to get entrepreneurs together to share ideas and ultimately create jobs through new business and startups.

Andy says you don't have to be in the Silicon Valley to have a good idea. He started a project in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

"I'm going to talk about how to make ideas happen and entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity," said Andy. "...and how cities like Redding can include latent entrepreneurial talent and build a better, stronger, wiser community."

Stoll will be one of 12 scheduled speakers at TEDx Redding. It will be at the Cascade Theatre on Saturday starting at 2 p.m. Tickets are $35 or $20 for students.
