TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a global organization that provides a platform to bring people togeather to share their ideas with a wider audience. The goal of TED is to spread knowledge, spark conversations, and inspire change. Since its founding in 1984 as a confrence in Technology, Entertainment & Design, TED has become a major force in the world of ideas and has inspired millions of people around the globe.

The key feature of TED is it's short presentation style talks, which typically last 18 minutes or less. TED speakers come from a wide range of backgrounds, including science, technology, business, arts, education and more, and they are chosen for their ability to share their ideas in a compelling and engaging way. Another important aspect of TED is its emphasis on diversity. TED is committed to amplifying voices from under-represented communities and to foster a more inclusive and equitable world. This is reflected in the range of speakers and topics covered, as well as in the organization's efforts to make its events and content accessible to a global audience. TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation.

In addition to its talks, TED produces original podcasts, short video series, animated educational lessons and TV programs that are translated into more than 100 languages and distributed via partnerships around the world. In addition it also offers a range of other resources such as TED-Ed, which offers animated lessons based on TED talks and more than 3000 anually and independently run TEDx program, which allows local communities to organize their own TED-style events. Then there is the "Audacious" Project, through which TED has helped generate over US$3 billion in funding for projects that seek to make the world a better place. Also in 2020, TED launched an initiative to provide solutions to the global climate crisis and set into motion a movement for a net-zero future, called "Countdown". See the complete listing of TED's various programs & initiatives.
