WHAT IS TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxIITHyderabad, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxIITHyderabad event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.


WHY IS IIT-HYDERABAD ORGANISING TEDxIITHyderabad?

Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad, one of the premier educational institutions in India is hosting the third edition of TEDxIITHyderabad. Though we are young, we have a great vision, agility, commitment and energy to create an innovative research environment.


At TEDxIITHyderabad, we believe it is important to invest in areas where the local community finds its relevance. Consequently, TEDxIITHyderabad is an effort to bring together and showcase the bright minds from the local scene- we are continuously in awe of how much Hyderabad has to offer in terms of the quality of ideas and number of people ready to share their stories with the world.


LAUNCHING TEDxIITHYDERABAD 2017

At IIT- Hyderabad, believe in transforming ideas into reality. And here we are taking a significant step towards this mission – TEDxIITHyderabad 2017. TEDxIITHyderabad is an annual programme aimed at educating, inspiring and connecting great minds. TEDxIITHyderabad 2017, a journey in itself, began with the search for a theme. The theme for this edition is “Tomorrow Starts Now”. The event will be a day long feature where the speakers go live along with presentations of TED Talks Videos.
