EduGrowth supported HolonIQ in the recently announced Australia and New Zealand EdTech 50. The list helps to shine a light on innovation across the market, the robustness of the ecosystem, and the collaboration between EdTech companies and education institutions.

There are approximately 750 EdTech companies across Australia and New Zealand, of which approximately 600 are from Australia. These companies are supporting learners, teachers, schools, institutions and companies to positively impact educational outcomes, support access to learning and increase the efficiency of educational processes and systems.

41 of the 2021 list are Australian companies employing 2,160 people with projected revenue of over $401 million. EdTech companies headquartered in Victoria and New South Wales have the most representation, 46% and 39% respectively.

The HolonIQ 2021 list includes a relatively mature cohort with two-thirds of the group over 6 years old – an indicator that established startups have been gaining traction through the COVID-19 pandemic in supporting their customers with new and / or existing services.
