Sponsor Marketplace

These companies are offering their in-kind services or products to TEDx organizers. Follow the instructions beside each opportunity listing.

Beyond providing this list, TED doesn't mediate partnerships between sponsors and TEDx events. It is up to each organizer, along with the representative of each company, to determine the terms of any given partnership, within the sponsorship rules. Partnerships between sponsors and TEDx organizers are arranged independently.

If you represent a company that would like to be included on this list, email us at tedx@ted.com.
