About us



 TEDx events are modeled after TED events, which feature a host of high-caliber speakers sharing ideas and innovations. TEDx events differ from TED events mainly by the fact that TEDx events are independently organised events targeted at the local community.  

St. Mira’s College for Girls is set in the heart of the city of Pune. The college aims to produce graduates capable of independent lifelong learning, to provide an environment wherein all stakeholders can achieve their full potential, and pro-activity and progression are the hallmark features of the college. These values are easily relatable to that of TEDx, and this is what makes it an ideal atmosphere to host a TEDx Event.  

 The event is a series of talks by inspiring personalities from all over the country on diverse topics covering vital fields like Technology, Entertainment, Art and Design, Social Sciences, and so on.   

TEDxStMirasCollege is a BBA initiative that is aimed at sharing transformative ideas. It is a collection of thinkers, innovators, explorers and learners that are always looking to expand horizons, change perceptions and trigger action. 

TEDxStMirasCollege revolves around the theme “Halfway There”


 More often than not, we are content with the one sided knowledge that we possess. We only see things that fit our perspective. 
It’s time for us to understand why the glass is not filled up to the brim and to see the other side of things that we already know about. It’s time for us to move from halfway there to completing our goal.  

Our goal


Is to bring together bright minds such as yours, and those that our generation would relate to, to give talks that are idea-focused, to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.
