Partner with TED
TED does partnerships differently. We meet Partners at the intersection of inspirational ideas, thorough research, and applied action.
Partnerships with TED leverage everything that makes TED, TED: our global, research-based ideas; our live, knowledge-sharing conferences and events; our TED Talk content and format; and our progressive approach to education through storytelling. A partnership with TED is truly unique, immersive and meaningful. It has the power to create change, to transform minds and perspectives and to shift cultures within organizations.
But, enough about us; this is about you.
Whatever your brand challenge, TED’s global culture of innovation has a set of solutions: flagship conferences, custom events, custom content, professional development and smart media strategies, brought together in a way that’s uniquely tailored for you.
You have a world-changing idea worth sharing. TED will give you a stage.
Want proof? We thought you might.

We have solutions
We’ve made a name for ourselves by unearthing and amplifying world-changing ideas. This is what we do best. We excel at bringing out ideas in our partners, either by inviting you into our world, injecting a bit of TED into yours, or better yet, dreaming up a combination of the two.
Leveraging a global reach across desktop, mobile, audio, social, and a range of distribution channels, we develop comprehensive programming that offers a premium and trusted environment for brand lift or a mix of audience targeting at scale.
Our annual flagship conferences are at the heart of TED’s mission to amplify ideas worth spreading. With over 3,000 attendees, 100+ speakers, Talks touching upon the most puzzling issues facing our world, plus a distinctive blend of live music, performance and comedy, our flagship conferences – TED, TEDWomen, and TEDSummit – offer an unprecedented opportunity to showcase the power and potential of your brand’s mission.
Inspired by TED’s mission and values, the TED Institute is an immersive program aimed at unearthing the next generation of ideas from within an organization. Using the same curatorial approach, masterful storytelling, and compelling formats, we’ll unlock your brand’s institutional knowledge and surface innovative thinking.
Distilling the best practices from thousands of hours of speaker coaching, we’ve prepared a one-day, hands-on, on-stage workshop to share these insights and provide a professional development program unlike any other.
We've done the work
Our goal is to work with each partner individually to ensure personalized and impactful programs that leverage TED’s myriad solutions.
