TEDxChowringhee is an independently organized event licensed from TED by Lokesh Nathany, the Life & Financial Coach. Sharing the same spirit as of TED, the event focuses on bringing together a journey of ideas and exploration in the form of short, powerful, thought-provoking talks (18 minutes or less) to inspire and build a better community of like-minded citizens. We invite all who want to Interact, Engage, Network, and take home Ideas and Inspiration.
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. The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations, and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences. At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a license granted by TED.
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. TED believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives, and ultimately, the world. TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation. The agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation.

TEDxChowringhee is a not for profit initiative. Even though the event is online, there are costs involved to organize and execute the event. Ticket sales collection helps us to meet the same cost. It also helps us in getting like-minded and serious attendees who understand and appreciates the value of TEDx events.
We do not offer any discounts for any category of attendees. However, our tickets are already subsidized and priced very reasonable.
Thanks to the challenges thrown by the Pandemic, the event would be hosted online. Our attempt is to design an experience for you and not just an event. You will not only get to listen to the inspiring talks but also will get to discuss those talks with fellow attendees, get entertained, and network as well.
Yes you can watch the talks on YouTube once they are uploaded in 2 to 3 weeks time. However, you will not be able to experience, engage, interact, and network while watching the recording.

We were very fortunate to have speakers from various walks of life but with one common factor. They all had various IFs in their life and they conquered it with their belief, commitment, focus, passion and perseverance. Our 11 speakers were from 11 different fields and no two-speaker was the same in terms of their journey, expertise, or narrative. We had speakers from Armed forces, Social change-maker, Entertainment industry, Sports, Storytellers, Innovators, Education, and Corporate Coach. The attendees loved the talks of all the speakers and the perspective they shared about their IFs in Life. A great start to our event.
