Curating Ideas For a better World.

TEDx takes the spirit of TEDxKanke to local communities with the mission of ideas worth spreading.



Our Story

TEDxKanke has been around in multiple forms since 2020. Under the able leadership, we have been running since 2020. In this short time we’ve been recognised on a PAN India level by TEDxKanke as being one of the top TEDxKanke events. We’ve built a meaningful community and demonstrated an exceptional commitment to ideas worth spreading, community mentorship and TEDxKanke values. For this we were awarded one of the first ever Legacy licences by TED, in 2019.


We are a non-profit, volunteer-led organisation. Together, we seek out the most inspiring and innovative solutions that go beyond limitations, beyond labels, pushing boundaries to create the kind of world we all want to live in.


The TEDxKanke family includes our core team, over 25 volunteers who collectively make up our TEAMx, our satellite team, over 50 speakers alumni and a network of dedicated partners who support our work.

TEDxKanke has built an iconic civic institution that is a vital part of our city and community. Through our resilience, innovation, and excellence in curation, we are a shining example of one of the best of TEDx.
