TED Institute

We know that innovative ideas 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 providing intensive one-on-one talk development to sharpen and fine tune ideas. The culmination is an event produced, filmed, and hosted by TED, generating a growing library of valuable TED Talks that can spur innovation and 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, 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 eco-system. TED Institute partners join the broader TED community with engagements at TED conferences in order to share insights from within their organizations to many of the world's most influential minds.
