Sponsorship Team


TEDxMinneapolis is a 501c3 nonprofit, and we depend on sponsors to financially support our programming and expand access to TEDxMinneapolis events to people at all levels of the economic spectrum.

Must feel comfortable making financial asks.

Sponsor Coordinator

Once a sponsor is confirmed for an event, we have several logistical steps to take: collect a high resolution logo, short description of the company, coordinate sponsor ticket access, arrange for any sponsor-specific benefits, and coordinate with the rest of the TEDxMinneapolis team. This role will be part customer-service, ensuring sponsors are well cared for and all of their sponsor benefits are provided, and part project management, coordinating with several TEDxMinneapolis team members.
