Welcome to Central India's leading thought leadership platform!

This is the global innovation platform for start-ups, corporates, artists, thinkers and passionate hearts. It’s an exhibition for path breaking ideas and concepts that can inspire change, a forum for sharing knowledge and a networking hub for nations, organisations and individuals.

What began as a small movement has continued to gain momentum, and now, just a few years later, the TEDxPandri experience has grown to include some of the most successful content-driven, highly thought-provoking and most sought after conferences in the region with a network of over 500 thinkers, doers and most influential people from the community.

The response to our program has been overwhelming, and we have experienced exciting exponential growth, connecting a highly influential community of over 10,000 people across our online communication platforms. As we embrace the fourth season of TED’s mission in the state, we are excited about the opportunities that are before us. TEDxPandri is a community where the spark of an idea becomes a movement with purpose.
