On Friday, June 26th, 2015, the Innovation Collaborative announced that it would provide one of two “Visionary Sponsors” to TEDxErie! The Visionary Sponsorship level is in the amount of $10,000 and will go toward production of the 100% volunteer driven event.
What is TED? Why did the Innovation Collaborative sponsor the event?
According to their website:
“TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (5-18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.”
As an official part of the TED network, TEDx-Erie will hold an event under the theme, “The Rising Tide,” where speakers from Erie and abroad will ruminate on the idea. As part of the TEDxErie event, the presentations and performances of local speakers and performers will be uploaded for worldwide distribution through a live free webcast during the event and through the TEDx YouTube channel afterwards. Every video has the chance to be promoted on TED’s web page. We are proud to support this event because we believe that Erie voices are worthy of the global conversation.
You can visit TEDxErie to learn more about The Rising Tide or follow TEDxErie on social media. Either way, the Innovation Collaborative remains committed to depth of ideas and the notion that the Erie community is valuable and world class.
