Forman Christian College is extrememly proud to have organized its second TEDx event on December 8th of last year.
With the theme, "Innovation- Harnessing the Hidden Revolution" , we have chosen to identify individuals who can still see potential for change and improvement in the existing structures preset in Pakistan.
Innovation and creativity have played a vital role in various fields of life; defining and reinventing everything from business models to education paradigms. TEDxFCCollege strongly believes that Innovation drives growth, resuscitates mature industries and opens up new opportunities for a better tomorrow.
Innovation, once limited to the domains of science and business, now plays a vital role in advancing markets, industries, and countless other sectors. In this day and age, people often fail to realize that there are opportunities available for expansion and advancement in existing structures. Hence it is imperative that we explore spaces for innovation, lest move towards a standstill.
There is a need to teach people how to perceive the world in new ways, find hidden patterns and make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena; to ask important questions and, subsequently, generate valuable solutions. These solutions, along with ability to renovate and reinvent—be it business, architecture, medicine, or education—are intellectual capital, giving a field or company competitive edge over its contemporaries.
Our team realizes this need, and therefore TEDxFCCollege 2012 would like to invite individuals who have brought, or plan to bring revolutionary changes in their respective fields. We not only welcome budding entrepreneurs who have overcome market stereotypes, but all who have altered their marked course for the betterment of society/human life/whatever fits.
The tools of the hidden revolution are innumerable and varied. For TEDxFCCollege, it is a matter of highlighting who is using them, and how.
