TED is a nonprofit organisation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.


TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. It believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. TED events comprise of online and offline talks by revolutionary people, who're pioneers in their fields, in order to ignite the minds of listeners and give them an opportunity to indulge in an enlightening discussion.

TED videos are available for free online at TED.com Over 100 million people view TED videos.


In order to bring TED's spirit to life around the globe, TED provides free license to individuals who seek to discover ideas and motivations and bring them forward in their own community. These individuals organise TEDx events, that include live speakers and recorded TED talks.


TEDxIGDTU was established in September 2018 by a team of very determined and aspiring students, wishing to share and spread motivations and inspirations from lives of successful people. The team takes pride in promoting diversity of thought and experience in all aspects, and works tirelessly throughout the year to deliver great quality TED talks.
