What is TED?

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.


TEDxGateway is an independently organised TED event operated under license from TED. At the day long conference we will feature eminent speakers from different walks of life will share unique ideas from India and all around the globe.


We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we’re building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.


The TEDxGateway community is a diverse one, both ethnically and socially. Our organisers, fellows, team members and speakers all coalesce into one large, wondrous amalgamation of brilliant ideas and thoughts. We work with, and around our speakers, and aim to cultivate their work through support and collaboration.


TEDxGateway’s community is multi-disciplinary – our Delegates represent every field from A (architects) to Z (zoologists).This breathtaking range of experiences and perspectives provides the richest possible landscape for creative collisions. Any chance meeting at TEDxGateway can lead to exciting new ideas and insights. Each conversation with a new person could reveal new trends, treatments and technologies – or spark them.
