About TEDx, x = independently organized 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. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.) WHAT IS TEDxDYPATILUNIVERSITY? TEDxDYPatilUniversity is an independently organized event licensed from TED and run by the TEDxDYPatilUniversity organizing team. This group began the current iteration of TEDxDYPatilUniversity at Navi Mumbai in 2018, with a single day of ideas and performances. It has become the leading platform for the propagation of comprehensive ideas, creativity, and innovation to the rest of the community. We aim to create and foster a sense of community amongst the people and organizations who have gathered (and continue to gather) around this event; to provide a cultural focus and impetus for conversation and debate.
