"The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand."
Vince Lombardi


TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading”. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, and Design, since then its scope has become even broader. TEDx events comprise of TEDTalks videos or a combination of live presenters who spark deep conversations and connections with an audience at a specific venue and region around the globe. The intention is for TEDx organizers to select or invite people with certain ideas, projects or successes they believe are worth spreading to the world.


TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently and on a community-by-community basis. Each speaker gets a total of 18 minutes using visual aids if needed, to present their topic or idea, and thereafter the speech is posted on the local TEDx organized event website where people across the globe can tune in for free to listen, comment, be inspired, or challenged by ideas.


  • The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all TEDx events have several features in common
  • A collection of short & carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances (Live or TEDTalks from TED.com)
  • A wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder
  • A minimum of two pre-recorded talks from the acclaimed TEDTalks video series
  • Bias-Free programming: no commercial, religious or political agenda


TEDxMITAOE is an independently organized TED event by the students of MIT Academy of Engineering, which aims to bring to its stage ideas worth spreading from all over India. The phenomenal success of the TEDxMITAOE 2020 is a reflection of the ever-increasing dedication and enthusiasm that all the team had displayed on a continual basis.

Theme for the very first edition of TEDxMITAOE was MOMENTUM, is a well thought through culmination of all that we stand for today.

And here we find ourselves at the epitome of curiosity as we intend to hear all about this from the masters of it- our distinguished speakers. Be it any field- social, economic, spiritual or educational, there is only one way with momentum- forward.


Hailing from the land of rich ancient Sanskrit wisdom, we fathomed that every edge is the beginning of a new horizon that is explorable. The pandemic made the past year lamentable to mankind in numerous ways. It was the end of many things, though it paved the way for limitless things we previously didn’t traverse. Ultimately it’s time to walk down that aspiring route.

At TEDxMITAOE, we are looking forward to exploring the beauty of new beginnings through the theme for the sophomore edition of TEDxMITAOE – ‘PRARAMBH’ – Ascend of a New Dawn!

Impelled by the prevailing circumstances and longing for the resurrection of new opportunities, innovations, and ideologies, we have exclusively hand-picked PRARAMBH as our theme for this year.

Be it any field- social, economic, spiritual, or educational, all of us have our own new beginnings and kick-starts in our lies. Here we find ourselves at the epitome of curiosity as we intend to hear all about this from the masters of it- our distinguished speakers.

The non-stop efforts put in by the entire team of TEDxMITAOE are behind the success of TEDxMITAOE PRARAMBH 2021.
