TEDxISCTE aims to create an open-minded space to connect the community by challenging the status quo and hopes to make a real impact on the world.

"TED is a think tank for humanity. It is a gathering of exceptional individuals, all with the ability to make a difference. We come, we listen, we participate, we learn, we apply and we improve. At its core, TED is a community built on innovation and invention, and this is consistent with our principles. We also sponsor TED because it inspires us and helps inform our thinking, both personally and professionally, throughout the year."

- Don Levy, Senior Vice President, Sony Pictures
