Infosys TED

TED, the organization devoted to “ideas worth spreading,” announces partnership with Infosys to launch the TEDx Anchor Program.

In partnership, the program will kick off with a two-year, 14-city pilot in India exchanging cultural ideas, and commemorating TEDx events around the world.

Citing on the alliance, Jay Herratti, TEDx Executive Director said, “We’re excited to partner with Infosys to deepen our commitment to the TEDx community with the launch of the TEDx Anchor Program. More than just offering TED’s support, this initiative is an opportunity to learn from and collaborate with our organizers, and to share local ideas with the world.” “India is an ideal place to launch this new program because it has such a strong network of 700+ TEDx events with so much potential for further expansion and growth – it is a big country with a lot of great ideas we are keen to discover and help spread.”

Through the strategic partnership with Infosys, TED will provide dedicated mentorship, scholarships and training to TEDx organizers in cities across India, including: Bangalore, Bhubaneswar, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Mangalore, Mumbai, Mysore, Pune and Thiruvananthapuram. This includes:

  • Annual scholarships for TEDx organizers to attend a TED Conference
  • Training and education sessions with TED Staff
  • Scholarship to participate in a TEDx Anchor India Workshop hosted at Infosys’s Mysore campus in March 2016
  • Tools and resources to assist in producing high quality talks, events, marketing and audience experiences at the local TEDx events
  • Opportunity to host local TEDx events at Infosys campuses in India
  • Marketing and communications support, including the creation of a documentary about the program to create awareness of the key issues and showcase the latest ideas coming out of India

“Infosys deeply relates to and supports TED’s mission to spread ideas. By sponsoring the TEDx Anchor Program in India, Infosys is keen to accelerate the sharing of ideas that matter in India. We firmly believe that India can strengthen its position amongst the global economies, led by the power of ideas, the power of creativity and the resulting potential of entrepreneurship,” said Pravin Rao, Chief Operating Officer, Infosys. “Exploring new, unprecedented ideas is the only way that we will be able to find the challenges of our time and in turn the solutions that will lead to peaceful societies, improved health and better ways of living for us all.”

A major TEDx Anchor Program workshop is also scheduled at the Infosys campus in Mysore on March 24, 2016. The first TEDx Anchor event will take place at the Infosys Bangalore campus in collaboration with TEDxBangalore.
