The theme of TEDxSIBMPune is ‘The Start of Fantastic Things’, because that’s what we believe an idea truly is – the beginning of something new, something great, that sets the ball rolling for even better things ahead. Be it the first composition of a to-be musical genius, the first struggle against oppression that results in victory, or an inventor’s ‘Eureka’ moment that has potential to improve millions of lives worldwide. We believe the start of fantastic things could be a thought, an impulse or an idea that goes beyond the status quo; that is not limited to an individual but aimed at contributing to the lives of many; it is not imperative for it translate into success in its original form, but it eventually becomes the source of origin for many a life changing innovation.

TEDxSIBMPune brings together stories of how fantastic things that exist began; celebrating the promise of how innovations today will turn out to be fantastic tomorrow. We raise a toast to all the thinkers, innovators, dreamers who dared to take a different path with their passion guiding them and to their ideas which gave rise to the start of many fantastic things.

TEDxSIBMPune, in its very first edition, aims to bring into the spotlight, ideas and innovations from various fields, industries, and walks of life. With some of the finest thinkers from across the globe, we look forward to providing an enriching experience for everyone who is a part of this event.
