About The Event

TEDxDharavi is an independently organized TED event operated under the license from TED. Like all TEDx events, this event also focuses on bringing people together on a common platform, make connections and share knowledge on the relevant topic of discussion.

The main idea behind TEDxDharavi is to take inspiration from Dharavi to explore innovation under constraints.

At TEDxDharavi, we will have innovators and speakers, from different walks of life, uncovering their amazing ideas, impact and their inspirational journey.

Why Attend TEDxDharavi?

  1. You’ll be surrounded by smart people who are driven and inclined to exploring newer ideas
  2. You’ll meet the amazing speakers during the breaks/networking high-tea session. Meeting them in person is a much more enriching experience.
  3. Format that allows for interactions. TEDx events are planned with elaborate breaks to ensure that the attendees get time to absorb the ideas and also interact during the breaks.
  4. Given the diversity of the speakers you are likely to find at least one or two who will change your perception on a topic/inspire you or motivate you and most importantly leave a significant impact on your life.
  5. Exclusive access to TEDxDharavi Mobile App, provided only to attendees of the event.
