TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, we're building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world's most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.
In fact, everything we do — from our Conferences to our TED Talks to the projects sparked by the TED Prize, from the global TEDx community to the TED-Ed lesson series — is driven by this goal: How can we best spread great ideas?
TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation. Our agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation.

TEDxESADE was created with the aim of sharing powerful ideas with students, provoking discourse amongst them, and inspiring the development of tomorrow’s great thinkers.
Since its inception in 2011, TEDxESADE has sought to fulfil these goals, and continues to provoke thought and debate through its annual event. TEDxESADE identifies with the TED mantra of ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’, and actively seeks out unexpected, breathtaking, daring and challenging messages, which are conveyed though mind-opening talks.
TEDxESADE is a student-run event organized by the TEDxESADE student society at ESADE Business School, based in Sant Cugat, Barcelona. TEDxESADE is an independent TEDx event and is operated under license from TED.
Self-organized events, TED-like experience
In the spirit of ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events bringing people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxESADE, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxESADE events, live speakers and videos combine to spark deep discussion and connection amongst small, captivated audiences. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
