What is TED?
TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a global set of conferences run by the private nonprofit organization Sapling Foundation, under the slogan "Ideas Worth Spreading". The emphasis is on the educational aspect. TED was founded in February 1984 as a one-off event; the annual conference series began in 1990. TED's early emphasis was technology and design, consistent with its Silicon Valley origins, but it has since broadened its focus to include talks on many scientific, cultural, and academic topics. TED talks had been watched over one billion times worldwide.
What is TEDx?
TEDx MITP , an independently organised TED-like event hosted MIT,Pune, has been actively involved in spreading ideas since 2015.So far it has hosted 2 Salon Events and 2 Live Speaker Events. TEDxMITP is the platform that showcases Pune's very best to the world. At TEDxMITP, we feature speakers sharing unique ideas - ideas which will spark deep discussion and introspection among the group that attends, those viewing live from across the world, and those who view the talks after the event is over. We seek to Enlighten, Unite and Provoke. TEDxMITP seeks to identify ingenious minds across the country and bring them all under one roof for a daylong event, because we believe that the baton of success best reaches its destiny when shared and passed amongst equally ignited and bright people.
