FAQs

General

1. What is TED?

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.

2. What is a TEDx 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, 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.

3. What will I take away from a TEDxTCET event?

Here’s the real question: what do you want to take away? If you’re not sure, here are some examples: You can take away ideas and inspiration to apply to your personal or professional interests; a quote or thought that makes you see something completely anew; a moment of happiness that results from engaging in a creative activity; or just the satisfaction of being part of an inspired experience with hundreds of other like-minded people. The opportunities are practically endless.
