OSE programs are for groups and independent events outside of OSE, Inc., the non-profit organization and staff. For example, TED events and programs are run by staff and the organization itself to fund and support an event or activity, but TEDx events are run from independent groups and communities who have partnered with TED. Considerations for funneling initiatives by communities or groups that want to hold an event that models, and follows the mission and brand of OSE can register in various programs.
Programs vs. Chapters
OSE Chapters are considered a formal extension of OSE that holds and supports funding, whereas programs may not. OSE Chapters are chartered organizations that require a separate formal process and due diligence which will be managed by OSE administrators, assuming to be Entrepreneurs in Residence.
