About Community Partners

Our Community Partnership Programme is about building bridges. We want the brilliant, game-changing ideas and conversations at TEDxBristol to be shared and accessed across Bristol’s diverse communities - not just with those who can afford to attend.
In 2017 we worked closely with 40 organisations including Babbasa Youth Empowerment, Centre for Deaf and Hard of Hearing People, City Academy and Knowle West Media Centre to provide over 260 free places to people from Bristol and the West’s diverse community groups. This is only made possible by the generosity of our Community Partners, who sponsored these seats.The TEDxBristol Community Partnership Programme 2017 was kindly developed and supported by Burges Salmon, Bristol & Bath Regional Capital, Oracle Start-up Cloud Accelerator, Flexi DB/ Mind Doodle, Dial-a-Geek, Uniquity, and Diverse Insights.

Our Community Partners

We are proud to have worked with these companies who sponsored the TEDxBristol 2017 Community Partnership scheme:

In the global marketplace, one size doesn’t fit all. That is especially true for today’s diverse and competitive startup ecosystem. Oracle Startup Cloud Accelerator is not your traditional accelerator program—it’s a next-generation acceleration initiative.

Mind Doodle is a new online mind mapping software for teams and individuals, built by software start-up FlexiDB Limited.

With real-time collaboration and live chat, Mind Doodle allows remote teams to work together seamlessly. Team members can watch changes on their screen as their colleagues or contacts develop their shared mind map from anywhere in the world. These mind maps aren’t limited to words. In addition to long-form notes, mind mappers can add depth with data and 3D charts, files and images. As well as enhancing productivity and creativity, Mind Doodle also works as a visualization tool, allowing users to visualize their mind maps in 3D.

What’s next? Extensions for agile project management, 3D SWOT analysis, WordPress, social media data and Google Analytics are coming soon.

Is your business getting the tech support it needs to grow? Bristol-based IT company Dial A Geek is here to help.

At Dial A Geek, we help people build better businesses by looking after their IT equipment and systems. We support, install, repair and we advise. And we also offer fixed-price packages that work for everyone from solo entrepreneurs to established enterprises. Whatever size business we’re working with, our experts provide a friendly, responsive and reliable service that’s a fraction of the cost of an in-house team and, although our work can get technical, we make sure we never speak geek.

Tate Bristol is here to bring the best digital, marketing and office talent to employers across the Bristol & Bath region. With a heritage brand behind us and 32 years’ experience in the industry, we know what we’re doing. And we’re passionate about matching the right people to the right organisations.

We believe recruitment as an industry should and can be done better. So we’re on a mission to be the UK’s most human and people-centred recruitment business. We build communities of digital, marketing and office talent and we provide opportunities for our community to connect and interview with organisations that are hiring. We work with employers who are focused on finding people who will align with their company values and ethos. None of the Bristol team are incentivised by individual bonuses. For us, it’s about so much more than that. We’re focused on long term relationships to help organisations build great teams and our community find fulfilling work.
