NMIMS Bengaluru hosted the fourth edition of TEDx on February 27, 2016, at Hotel Novotel, Bengaluru Techpark.
In the spirit of Ideas Worth Spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience, with people coming from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment and Design. The theme for this year’s event was “Knitting Visions” through which it was intended to discuss, learn and spread the unheard visions of people belonging to different walks of life with an altogether different set of experiences. It is envisioned that these, along with one’s own set of notions and thoughts, shall together knit a new, vibrant and ignited world.
The ardent team of TEDx NMIMS Bangalore 2016 comprising of 30 members endeavoured day and night to put up the best show. The entire team was divided into sub – teams dedicated for specific functions.
The highly adept members of the ‘Speaker’s Team’ screened approximately 800 speaker profiles and finally hand – picked a set of 10 speakers across diverse backgrounds. Dev Shah, an eight year – old who has won many medals for Chess, Vinita Bali – former MD of Britannia Industries Ltd, Dr. Kalyan C Kanakala – national expert on Intellectual property for United Nations Industrial Development Organisations, Shailesh Kumar – named among top 10 data scientists in India by Analytics magazine, Jockin Arputham, Dr. Abhas K Mitra, Vani Ganapathy, Shinie Antony, Sangeetha Menon and Disha Oberoi were the ten star speakers of the event.
The ideas and experiences shared by the speakers inspired and enthralled the audience.
