Who can become a sponsor?

Most companies and individuals may become sponsors. Bookstores are traditional partners with TEDx events. Sponsors must be approved by TED in advance. When a TED Sponsor is approved for our event, it is approved for that one specific event only. You will need to reach out and reapply for sponsor approval for all subsequent TEDx events.

Unfortunately, the following people cannot sponsor events:

TEDxSBU presenters

Companies or Organizations who deal with weapons/ammunition, tobacco/cigarettes, or adult-oriented products/services.

How will our company logo be displayed?

Your company logo will be displayed both on our TEDxSBU website and during the presentation.

On our site

Your logo will be displayed prominently on our Sponsor page along with the benefit package level you have helped fund.

During the presentation

There may only be a single slide in the video to feature all of our sponsor logos. Sponsor logos may not appear anywhere else in the video. If we have multiple sponsors we must feature all of our sponsor logos on the one slide. We cannot superimpose our event logo or a sponsor logo over the speaker’s talk or slides. We will not feature rolling credits. Sponsor logos must appear smaller than our TEDx event’s logo.

Slides related to sponsors will appear in the following sequence:

  • General event intro graphics (optional)
  • Our TEDx event logo
  • Sponsor pre-roll card (cannot exceed 3 seconds)
  • Talk Sponsor pre-roll card (cannot exceed 3 seconds)
  • Post-roll card (optional)
