TED Partnership

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). This mission aligns closely with BCG's own search for new insights that deliver the greatest value to clients and the world.

A Conversation with TED's Chris Anderson

The Power of Ideas and Openness

TED's curator, Chris Anderson, a former journalist and entrepreneur, sat down in advance of TED@BCG 2016 to discuss the power of ideas and openness with Rich Lesser, BCG's CEO and president.

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.

Ted Institute

BCG is proud to be a founding partner of the TED Institute, a unique program launched in 2013. Harnessing TED's world-renowned platform and unique approach to curation and storytelling, the TED Institute enables select organizations to spur their innovation and share their insights with many of the world's most influential minds.


As part of our overall partnership, TED and BCG jointly curate and create TED@BCG events each year in cities around the world; to date, we have hosted six events—in Singapore, San Francisco, Berlin, London, Paris, and Milan.

In 2017, more than 500 executives, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders gathered in Milan to explore the theme "Break the Mold." 

At the event, 15 speakers—BCG experts and key influencers—offered their unique and expert perspectives on artificial intelligence, leadership, the impact of diversity on innovation, and more. Videos from the event will be launching soon.



Nearly 450 executives, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders gathered in London for TED@BCG in 2015 to explore the theme Onwards & Upwards: In Pursuit of Growth.


Our partnership with the TED Institute has also captured some of BCG's most famous ideas in short animated films.
