About TED

A passionate belief in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately the world, resulted in an international, non-profit organization, devoted to spreading ideas. Hence TED began in 1984 as an annual conference on Technology, Entertainment and Design. Thus started a platform for sharing knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers and a community of curious souls coming together to spread and seed the ideas that matter. TED’s reach and scope have become broader ever since then, covering science, arts, medicine, global issues, music and more!

The TED philosophy is all about simplified, authentic storytelling, which seems to fit well with its mission of “ideas worth spreading”.

About TEDx

A global movement dedicated to propagating the ideas to communities around the globe through independently organized TED-like events, meant to inspire conversation, prompt innovation and create connections. Officially, the ‘X’ in TEDx stands for independently organized TED event, but it’s more of a TED ‘multiplied’.

About TEDxBITBangalore

TEDxBITBangalore is a channel to propagate ideas globally through a local platform. We hold a university-level license from TED to organise an independent TED event to effectuate the same. It was initiated by a humble group of young visionaries dedicated to bringing together, ideas worth spreading. In this fifth edition of TEDxBITBangalore, we aspire to nurture the ideas that bear the potential to bring about a change in the world.
