Mumbai, Maharashtra

Our event being themed around 'Roots + Innovation', our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused, and on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter. We are expecting a multidisciplinary audience across age groups and walks of life.

Our Philosophy
In a city that is now a conflagration of electric ideas, motion pictures and a fast paced lifestyle, we at TEDxSIESCASC believe in the idea of our roots - an identity that we carry around. Where the trend is going global, we bring to you ideas of change and innovation - stories and ideas that have spent years in incubation - that are deep rooted and can inspire change.
