TED (Technology Entertainment Design) is a non-profit organization established in America in 1984.
In line with their core motto of "Ideas Worth Spreading," TED sponsors ideas and gathers thinkers and visionaries alike from across the world in TED Conferences conducted annually. There, prominent speakers from a number of fields discuss a wide variety of topics ranging from science to business to social issues in lectures lasting 18 minutes or less.
Previous TED talks have included notable personalities such as Microsoft founder Bill Gates and former US President Bill Clinton.
TEDx is a program that is independently managed all over the world based on TED’s spirit of “Ideas Worth Spreading.”
TEDx events are made possible through a special license provided by TED. The x of TEDx means “independently.”
While TED handles general event guidelines, TEDx event planners have full freedom to decide the content of their event.
Therefore, participants can listen to inspiring talks that maintain the standard of quality expected of TED events.
