The Weekly Inspire Hours are meant to inspire and catalyze students to develop an entrepreneurial and innovative mindset. They will be consisting of a weekly/bi-weekly brief talks by prominent speakers around the world, primarily through the TED platform. TED (and its sister TEDx) events are world-wide platform events where various speakers talk on intriguing and rife topics and events. These include latest technological inventions, discoveries, psychological hacks, etc. The plan is to broadcast a couple of such talks each session and have the students discuss the topics of the talks after they conclude. This will often lead to insightful and revealing discussions among the students and might even sprout a new business idea/innovative thought.
