About TEDx
TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) is a media organization which posts talks online for free distribution, under the slogan “ideas worth spreading”. TED was founded in February 1984 as a conference, which has been held annually since 1990.
TED’s early emphasis was technology and design, consistent with its Silicon Valley origins, but it has since broadened its focus to include talks on many scientific, cultural, and academic topics.
TEDx are independent TED-like events, which can be organized by anyone who obtains a free license from TED, agreeing to follow certain principles.
TEDx events are non-profitbut may use an admission fee or commercial sponsorship to cover costs similarly, speakers are not paid. They must also relinquish the copyrights to their materials, which TED may edit and distribute under a Creative Commons license.
A TEDx event is organized by volunteers from the local community, and just like TED events, it lacks any commercial, religious, or political agenda. Its goal is to spark conversation, connection, and community.
TEDx presentations also include live performances, which are catalogued in the TEDx Music Project. In 2011, TED began a program called “TEDx in a Box” that allows people in developing countries to hold TEDx events.
TEDx also expanded to include TEDxYouth events, TEDx corporate events, and TEDxWomen. [citation needed]
TEDxYouth events are independent programs set up for students roughly between 7–12 grades
These events usually have people closer to the age of the students and sometimes show TED Talks.[citation needed] 
According to TEDxSanta Cruz, “as of 2015, over 1,500 [TEDx events] have been scheduled all over the world”.
Since 2015, TEDxHyderabad is being conducted in India every year, with its 3rd edition conducted in September 2017.As of 2017, TED Talks airs as a television programme in Jamaica on CVM Television.
TED’s format 
A suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances that are idea-focused, and cover a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.
TED Talk videos 
Every TEDx event either shows only TED Talk videos to its audience, or shows both TED Talk videos and live speakers from the community. For events less than half a day in length, two TED Talks videos are required to be shown. For longer events, 25% of the total number of talks must be official TED Talk videos. All TED Talk videos can be found on TED.com.
Diversity of topics 
All TEDx events present multiple issues and a diversity of voices from many disciplines. After all, what’s the fun without a little variety?
Community-driven and bias-free content
A TEDx event is organized by volunteers from the local community, and just like TED events, it lacks any commercial, religious or political agenda. Its goal is to spark conversation, connection and community.
What a TEDx event is not:
·        A TEDx event isn’t an industry or marketing conference. It isn’t limited to one topic or field. It isn’t used to sell something.
·        A TEDx event is not organized by or for special-interest political, religious or commercial groups.
·        A TEDx event cannot be used to raise money, not even for a charity.
·        A TEDx event cannot partner with another conference or event.
·        A TEDx event can’t be co-branded with an institution except under specific license types – for a college or university, or for internal events (for corporations and organizations).
·        A TEDx event is not a platform for professional speakers, such as motivational speakers and professional life coaches. Its purpose is to give a platform to those who don’t often have one.
A TEDx event is not focused solely on entrepreneurship, business or technology. Diversity of topics is key!
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. 
Our event is called TEDxBangalore where x = independently organized TED event. 
At our TEDxBangalore event, TED Talks, videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 
The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
