We know that innovative ideas, cutting-edge research and fresh approaches to challenging problems can be discovered inside visionary organizations around the world. The TED Institute helps surface and share these insights.
What is the TED Institute?
Every year, TED works with a group of select companies and foundations to identify internal ideators, inventors, connectors and creators. Drawing on the same rigorous regimen that has prepared speakers for the TED main stage, TED Institute works closely with each partner, overseeing curation and fact-checking and providing intensive one-on-one talk development to sharpen and finetune ideas. The culmination is an event that is produced, filmed and hosted by TED, generating a growing library of valuable, vetted TED Talks that showcase original research, spur innovation and can transform organizations.
Who should apply?
Partners who participate in this program are selected based on the richness of their experience, the breadth of their enterprise, the significance of their research and the potential to create impact by leveraging TED’s storytelling, curation, and strategic-thinking capabilities. Ideal members of the TED Institute are also keen to invest and participate in the larger TED ecosystem. TED Institute partners join the broader TED community with engagements at TED conferences in order to share insights and research from within their organizations with many of the world's most influential minds.
