In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TEDxPESITBSC is a TEDx event - organised by PES Institute of Technology, Bangalore South Campus - that aims to celebrate and propagate the power of ideas through live talks and activities.
After three successful editions-The Creative Echo, Limitless and Unleash, TEDxPESITBSC is a well-known local TEDx event run by students of the institution and strives to provide a platform for new and fresh ideas.
TED is an annual event where some of the world's leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design - 3 broad areas that are, correctively, shaping our future.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
