Everything starts from the mind. The  birthpIace of ideas is the mind. Every tangible innovation today was conceived in the mind.

But there is also a thin line between the person that has the idea and the person that makes the idea a reality.

Hey! Some of us just need a dose of inspiration to get the work done.

The TEDx event that has been inspiring thousands of people for the past 26 years all over the world, is an event that talks about ideas worth spreading in any field, namely Technology, Entertainment, Design and many more. To engage and connect communities.
