Band on stage at Culture3


TED Tech is a collaboration powered by TED and Culture3. Culture3 helps organizations prepare for the impact of emerging technologies.

Their network of thought leaders, industry-specific white papers, and globally-recognized events chart the near future and seek to establish best practice. In a world of negative news at one end and hype at the other, Culture3 provides an antidote, celebrating the best of emerging technologies to shape a world that delivers progress for all.

How the application
process works


The apply button will prompt you to log into your existing account or create a new account (this part is free).


Once you’ve verified your account (for new accounts only), you’ll answer several questions that help us understand a bit more about you. This includes optional demographic questions that help us grow the community thoughtfully. You’re welcome to complete the application in multiple sittings — your partially completed application will be saved to your account.


You’ll need to provide payment information but you won’t be charged until your application is reviewed and approved — you’ll then be given a chance to withdraw your application or change your payment method before payment is processed.
