About TEDx partnerships 
TEDx is an open source community of events that inspire innovation, thought leadership, and visionary insights. Each TEDx event is independently organized by an extraordinary individual. We are not hosting TEDxDili for political reasons, monetary reward or personal gain but because we truly believe in the power of ideas to change the world.

Many TEDx events are seeking the support of local companies who can offer ways to enhance the experience for their attendees — most often, through in-kind goods and services.
