TED Conferences has appointed Beanstalk to extend its brand platforms into new product categories and services that leverage TED’s content and support its mission to spread ideas, foster community and create impact. 

TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, is a nonprofit that believes powerful ideas, powerfully presented, move us to feel something, to think differently and to act. Through live events, free original content and business solutions, TED strives to discover and spread ideas that spark conversation, deepen understanding and drive meaningful change. 

In addition to the TED brand, Beanstalk will develop licensing opportunities for TED-Ed, TED’s education initiative that aims to spark and celebrate the ideas and knowledge-sharing of teachers and students around the world, and TEDx, a grassroots initiative that brings the spirit of TED to local communities around the globe. 

Beanstalk will extend TED and its associated brands through strategic partnerships that reinforce the brands’ positioning as platforms for the pursuit of knowledge across categories, including toys, physical games and puzzles, consumer electronics, publishing, travel tours, camps and other services, as well as e-commerce and direct-to-consumer activations.
