We believe in the power of ideas and the power of individuals to take those ideas and change the world. But nobody does it alone. The TED Prize offers a collaborative platform for people to get behind big, imaginative innovations and bring their different ways of thinking to push them even further. Many individuals and companies have already put time, resources, thoughts and ideas behind Jill's idea of engaging all Earthlings in the search for the ultimate cosmic company.
