Frequently Asked Questions FAQs
Here are some answers that we feel would solve your queries.
What is TEDxSIESGST?

TED is a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 110 languages. TEDx is an independently organized licensed event. TEDxSIESGST is proud to organize this event for the first time in Navi Mumbai, on 21st January 2017, with the theme of “Seeding Wisdom”.

Are the organizers or speakers paid?

What is the procedure to select speakers?

We aim to provide a platform to the budding talent that can share ideas worthwhile and help in community building.
