Thank you to our valued partners for supporting TEDxUCCI: Spark!

Event curator Dr. JD Mosley-Matchett said, "Our sponsors have been wonderful and the TEDx events we produce couldn't be done without their support. Foster's Food Fair and Universal Air Conditioning have sponsored TEDxUCCI since its inception in 2015. The Ministry of Community Affairs, Youth and Sports has been a major sponsor for the past two years. In 2017 we welcomed CITCO Financial Services, OnCourse Cayman, and OfReg as new sponsors. Subway helped provide healthy lunches for the event. Hopscotch Productions defrayed the many of our production-related costs. It's amazing how these diverse organizations have rallied around our efforts to being a real TED-like experience to the Cayman Islands!"

The Utility Regulation and Competition Office (OfReg) is the independent multisector regulatory authority established by the enactment of the Utility Regulation and Competition Law 2016 and commenced operations on 16 January 2017. 

OfReg is an amalgamation of the Information and Communications Technology Authority (ICTA, and the Electricity Regulatory Authority (ERA), and the Petroleum Inspectorate, which hitherto had been a Department of the Government of the Cayman Islands.

When it comes to “Ideas Worth Spreading,” OfReg's CEO J. Paul Morgan is pleased to promote the spread of great ideas from the Cayman Islands to the rest of the world. And OfReg has helped do exactly that through its generous sponsorship of TEDxUCCI 2017.

In presenting a sponsorship cheque to UCCI alumna and TEDxUCCI Sponsorship Team Leader Alina Soto, Mr. Morgan noted that TEDxUCCI’s vision to stimulate young minds to think outside the box and be innovative is aligned with OfReg’s mandate, as innovation is the key to the future development of Cayman.
