TEDx SIBM Bangalore


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 TEDxSIBMBangalore, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSIBMBangalore event, TEDTalks 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.

Visit Tedx Homepage for further details.


At TEDxSIBMBangalore, we envision that our live speakers, talks, videos and interactions shall combine to spark profound discussions and inspire minds to usher in a world of possibilities.The driving force behind us, is an amalgamation of the incessant intellectual curiosity and creative bend of the mind coupled with the ingenuous spirit of innovation.

The Road Less Travelled

“We are the music makers,

And we are the dreamers of dreams,

Wandering by lone sea-breakers

And sitting by desolate streams;—

World-losers and world-forsakers,

On whom the pale moon gleams:

Yet we are the movers and shakers

Of the world for ever, it seems.”

The initial lines of the ODE written by Edward Elgar capture the very essence of being different.

This year with the theme of “The Road Less Travelled”, TEDxSIBMBangalore invites audacious individuals who dared cross the line of conventional thoughts and embarked the journey on less treaded path to fulfil their dreams and aspirations.

Embrace your unknown fears. Show courage to go beyond the defined boundaries. Unshackle yourself from others expectations. Don’t hold yourself back. Give new ideas. Become a Game- Changer and make a difference to this world. Be fearless. Be bold. Be the risk-taker. Be different. Be ready to tread on the road less travelled.
