TEDx Shiv Nadar University 2017 is staged for an explosive return to the TEDx platform for its second edition precisely 364 days after erecting its first playground of ideas. The maiden edition on November 13, 2016 saw the confluence of 12 speakers, a 150 member strong audience and a thousand ideas, which marked the genesis of a revolution – a revolution of ideas worth sharing with the masses. This revolution is now gearing up to arrive at its second milestone this November 12, 2017 – TEDxShivNadarUniversity 2017.
What is TEDx
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. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis, under a free license from TED.
Team TEDx at Shiv Nadar university started with 28 members 14 speakers, 2 sponsors and a humble budget of 6 lakh. Now, the team has evolved and expanded to 39 members strong garnering a kitty of 12 lakh+ almost double of the previous edition. 14 speakers, 5 sponsors, and a treasure trove of experiences speaks a lot the enriching journey that continues. This year shall truly be an evolution, with an increased number of speakers and audience members, and thus an increase in the abundance and diversity of ideas at TEDx Shiv Nadar University 2017.
What To Expect
The energy is certainly going to be infectious with music groups Synergy SNU’s celebrity acapella group and Abhishek Bhatia’s solo project – Blue Curtain lending their sound to the TEDxShivNadarUniversity stage and adding to the charm of the day with their euphonious notes.
In their last communication with Houston, the team at TEDxShivNadarUniversity also confirmed that Team Indus’s rover ECA was on board, with all its telemetry functioning as intended. The rover is expected to make a short pit stop at TEDxShivNadarUniversity this Sunday, before continuing onto its final destination – the moon.
From calligraphers to race car drivers; from roboticists to storytellers, it will be a lineup of fourteen speakers that promises a step up from the first edition of TEDxShivNadarUniversity. On 12th November, witness Abhishek Bhatia bring to life, the haunting melodies that define the music of Curtain Blue, Abhineet Sonkar help in igniting the hidden creativity in each of us, Sriram Raghavan explain the fascinating technology of bitcoin, Shreya Soni reveal the mystery behind the Delhi Secret Supper Club and many more.

Come with open minds, and interact with all – speakers, team, audience, for all you know, the most interesting person may not be delivering a talk up on stage, but in fact, sitting right next to you.
