TEDx@XIMB shares the same passion and vision as TED: communicating ideas in an inspirational way. It seeks the most interesting, unusual and potentially groundbreaking ideas and then provides a platform to share them with the world. It aims to develop a consortium of high-power ideas across disciplines and technologies to inspire people to think and take actions to help create a better future. The theme of the event is ‘Ignite the spark'. We have been granted a licence by TED to lay the foundation of TEDxXIMB in 2012, as a means and opportunity to reach out to more people throughout the nation and to carry forward the fire ignited by ideas. The event will be held on 1st December, 2012 within the premises of Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar. Entry to the event is by invite only.
