TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It 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. It includes the award-winning TED Talks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize. On TED.com, talks from TED conferences are shared with the world for free as TED Talks videos. A new TED Talk is posted every weekday.
About TEDx (x = independently organized TED event)
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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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).
TEDxIIMRanchi is an independently organized TED event by IIM Ranchi. It is a platform to share ideas, thoughts which seeks to mould lives and give a sense of direction. It brings together people from all walks of life with varied experiences under one roof and enables them to learn and unlearn through shared experiences.
