TEDxICU is a student non-profit organization that aims to provide a platform where people can a) express ideas, b) be inspired, and c) find a motivation to step out of their comfort zone. TEDxICU strives to contribute to TED’s vision of “Ideas worth spreading” by organizing an annual TEDx speech event. In the liberal arts curriculum provided by ICU, students come in touch with a variety of values and thoughts everyday and interact with that with critical thinking in mind. TEDxICU aims to create an open community where ICU students, staff, locals, and all others can participate freely so that what was learnt in the event can create a positive effect on the community.

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.

The annual TED Conference takes place every spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include, where new TED Talks are posted daily; TED Translators, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established The Audacious Project that takes a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
