Can I become an in-kind Partner?

We’re definitely interested in working with in-kind partners, as it fits the TEDx spirit of collaboration perfectly. TEDxPCC wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the passionately committed volunteers and partners. The most valuable partnership are those supporting us with vital elements of the production and organization of the TEDxPCC event, such as catering, video production, and editing. Naturally, we are always open for partnerships that contribute in any way. Email mohamad.abdulkarim@pcc.edu to get in touch with us.
