What is

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. The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

TEDx is an independently organized TED event which helps communities enjoy a TED like experience, through live speakers and videos of TED talks. A TEDx event aims to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation among 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.
TEDxVignanUniversity is organized by a group of student enthusiasts belonging to various professional coliseums. TEDxVignanUniversity has been curated to host a novelty of talks and eminent speakers with an aim of providing current & future insights to effect on the local community advancement. The first edition of TEDxVignanUniversity chapter is to be organized on the 9th of September, 2017.
In the timeline of human life, every century, decade, year, month, week, day takes turns towards various phases, making changes to the survival and nature of livelihood. An instance of standard of living in India says, around 2 decades back a hero cycle defines your standard as normal whereas a hero motorcycle does the same today. The theme of TEDxVignanUniversity, Diverging Patterns is made to make everyone understand this divergence in the development perspective of future.
