Why Partner

TEDx is an open-source community of events inspiring innovation, thought leadership, and visionary insights. TedxSarasota is held because we truly believe in the power of ideas to change the world. TEDxSarasota is seeking the support of local companies who can offer ways to enhance the experience — most often through in-kind goods and services.

If you own or represent a company which wants to explore opportunities for partnering with TEDxSarasota, please contact us at Donna@tedxsarasota.com
