Welcome to India's leading thought leadership platform!

Over the past 6 years, we’ve organized nearly 40 events and featured hundreds of amazing humans in our pursuit to serve our community in Bangalore and India. Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come so join us and help move ideas into action.

What is TEDx? 
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBangalore, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBangalore event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

A Look Back

Here is a snapshot of the memories we’ve made over the past 6 years in Bangalore.

Listen to our community

Our attendees were inspired to make a difference in their lives after joining TEDxBangalore.

It was an honour and privilege to be a Speaker at the TEDxBangalore 2018 conference along with so many other achievers from such a diverse pool of professionals and artists. For me, it has been a great space to discuss my musical ideas and endeavours and be able to musically express that and the fact that an innovative giant like Infosys had been such an integral part of the conference, gives the whole enterprise of sharing ideas on such a platform the boost it rightfully deserves. Thank you TEDxBangalore for helping me fuel my ideas and giving it a rightful space.

It all starts with an Idea! The Ideas that TEDxBangalore picks is what attracts me to their event every time. Be it their Salons or Main event its all about speakers, ideas, conversations, performances, lovely goodie bags and a diverse set of people! One such event in the city not to be missed!
