On 19th January'14, BITS Pilani, Goa Campus organized its 4th chapter of TEDx- "Cross Roads and Dead ends", x implying an independently organized TED event. An idea is the driving force in the path of success and TED is the global platform that serves ideas and thought provoking works on a platter to reach out to the budding thinkers from all walks of life. TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design spreads ideas at a local level. TEDxBITSGoa stands testament to the success of the TEDx concept.
