TED is a global non-profit organization to uphold the spirit of `Ideas Worth Spreading`. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

TEDx is an independently organized TED event which helps communities enjoy a TED like experience, through live speakers and videos of TED talks. Extensively conducted by leading universities and organizations, TEDx events have seen incredible growth across the globe. A TEDx event aims to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation among the members of the audience. Idea-centric, crisp, 18-minute deliverances by eminent personalities from diverse fields inspire and educate alike. The breaks provide ample time to strike up conversations with other enthusiasts, paving the way for interesting discussions and varied perspectives.

Involving a wide array of highly successful visionaries, TEDxIITKharagpur event intends to foster and nurture the seeds of innovation, vision and creativity within the budding entrepreneurs. The theme of first edition of TEDx was "Ignite changes" followed by "Unturned pages" and this year it was "Prism of possibilities". Talks were followed by networking sessions wherein interested audience interacted with speakers and gained insight about the inertia, frictions and enthusiasm of the ideas.
