TEDxSouthBank Partners
TED is a non-commercial enterprise, and similarly all TEDx events are run on a not-for profit basis. Additionally, TEDxSouthBank is committed to ensuring the ticket prices for our event make it as accessible as possible. As such, TEDxSouthBank is only possible as a result of the generous support and contribution of a special group of organisations and companies that are committed to spreading ideas that can help change the world.
