“We Aspire to Inspire.”


TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, is an annual event that brings together the world's leading thinkers and doers to share their ideas that matter in any discipline — technology, entertainment, design, science, humanities, business, and development. TED is a global community, that welcomes people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives, and, ultimately, the world.


TEDx is a community initiative, created in the spirit of TED’s overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading.” TEDx brings the spirit of TED to spark conversation, connection, and community. TEDx events are duly operated under a license from TED where we try and seek to uncover new ideas and to share the latest research in the local areas that spark conversations in our communities with a deep sense of passion and dedication.


TEDxMITAOE is an independent TEDx event organized at MIT Academy of Engineering, Pune, an autonomous institute affiliated with Savitribai Phule Pune University. This platform was created to promote TED’s vision of ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’, on a community scale. This year at TEDxMITOE we aim to skyrocket to the unexplored limits of our very own personality through our theme “SONIC BOOM”.

What will you find at the event?

  • The content and design of each TEDx event are unique and developed independently, although all TEDx events are based on a standard protocol.
  • A series of brief and well-prepared talks, demonstrations, and performances (Live or TEDTalks from TED.com)
  • A diverse spectrum of topics that encourage study, inspiration, and curiosity.
  • Two pre-recorded presentations from the celebrated TEDTalks video series
  • Purely idea-centric and inspiring talks - No commercial, religious, or political agenda

TEDxMITAOE 2022-23

Every adventurous new beginning comes with challenges that knock us down, yet pursuing our passion and overcoming hurdles makes us stronger and undefeatable. To truly do something monumental and unveil the finest version of ourselves we need to take risks and look up to the unimaginable. We need to step out of our comfort zone and face our fears. 

Limits like fears are often an illusion. This year at TEDxMITAOE we aim to skyrocket to the unexplored limits of our very own personality through our theme “SONIC BOOM”. On our path toward our passion and ideals, we strive to be fearless, grow to be our best, and break down all known boundaries. No excuses, No fears, No limits. 

We intend to spark intriguing conversations here at TEDxMITAOE 22-23 and share the narratives of our illustrious speakers who are epitomes of thinking beyond the box. We yearn to bring to light ideologies and inventions that have proliferated and outshined the rest of the globe.

And who knows? We might accomplish the unfathomable and shock the world, just like Chuck Yeager did in the Bell X-1 on October 14, 1947, when he was the first human to fly faster than the speed of sound!!!
