Our Partner

Bank of Ireland is delighted to sponsor TEDˣ Trinity College Dublin 2019. This exciting launch pad for
thought-leadership is also a vital ‘Ideas worth Spreading’ meeting ground for the TEDˣ Society
community of students and faculty across Trinity College and Dublin city.

Bank of Ireland and Trinity College Dublin have a long standing relationship going back to when the
financial institution first opened and Trinity College Dublin was Bank of Ireland’s second customer.
This year marks 26 years that the group has provided banking services on campus to the students,
faculty and management of the university.

As the financial services partner of the college we recognise the importance of community building
for the future talent and economic competitiveness of the city. We share a joint vision to grow
enterprise, innovation and entrepreneurship opportunities, and Bank of Ireland sees TEDˣ Trinity and
its ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’ philosophy as a great opportunity to support innovative thinking across
disparate research, business and social disciplines.
