Education Partner

As a way to expose high school students to the benefits of seeing TEDx Talks, each year we seek a limited number of partners who wish to provide funds dedicated to bringing under-served high school students into our annual event.

For this partnership TEDxSanDiego underwrites half the registration fee, allowing a $2,500 contribution to provide entrance for 50 high school students.  Organizations we have worked with in the past to provide students include the Aaron Price Fellows Program, Barrio Logan College Institute, and Element Education.
(Let us know if you would like to sponsor a different organization or group of students)

Innovation Partner

Innovation Alley is a key component of the TEDxSanDiego experience, and your $2,500 contribution will help defer the costs incurred to close down the street and build exhibits for the twenty companies we’ll feature in the alley. Our current partners include Banner Bank, Wilkinson Mazzeo and, One Hart Events. Review which companies we featured in 2016, 2015 and 2014.

Join us on a journey of change, both here in San Diego, as well as the world at large, by leveraging new ideas, technology breakthroughs and human insights. Contact us for further information on any of our partnership opportunities.
