TED at BCG partnership hero

BCG Partners with TED

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design converged, and today it covers almost all topics—from science to business to global issues—in more than 100 languages. Its signature blend of innovation, insight, and storytelling has ignited a worldwide community committed to lifelong learning and to sparking positive change. 

Combining the best of TED with the best of BCG, we partner to deliver the latest insights and ideas shaping business and society.
