Managing Director’s Report

Leading EduGrowth is a great honour and privilege.
David Linke | Managing Director, EduGrowth

Leading the team at EduGrowth continues to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional career. Having a job where on a daily basis I get to connect members, future members, education leaders, government officials, and international partners in real actions to enable the growth of Australia’s EdTech ecosystem is a true privilege.

This past year has seen tremendous growth within EduGrowth’s program delivery of our LaunchPad, ClearPath, and EcoSystem programs. We saw record attendance and sector involvement via our showcase event, The Melbourne EdTech Week attracting over 6,000 attendees either in person or online and 134 speakers participating in the 4-day program.

I’d like to thank all of our strategic partners including Deakin University, Monash University, Navitas, Study Melbourne, AWS, Clickview, and Wonde, and welcome our new partners, Curio, Edalex, Google Cloud and Leadsquared. Your support allows EduGrowth to deliver on its mission to advance the Australian EdTech ecosystem globally.

Our global footprint expanded over the past 12 months with successful programs such as our USA and Singapore Trade Missions, the Going Global UK initiative, and the Australia-Vietnam EdTech Innovation Exchange.

We were also extremely proud to conclude the Global Victoria EdTech Innovation Alliance in partnership with the Victorian Government. Having the support of the Victorian Government in such an important program further reinforces the central role that EduGrowth plays in the Australian EdTech Ecosystem.

The summary is a testament to the success of this program 

  • 89% of companies signed commercial agreements
  • More than $10M in revenue generated
  • More than $12M capital raised

I’d like to thank all our partners and members that ensure EduGrowth can deliver to our mission of accelerating the Australian EdTech mission.  These companies have committed themselves to the vision that Australia can be a leader in the digital delivery of education around the globe.

Lastly, I’d like to thank the EduGrowth team for their continued commitment to our mission and to our Board of Directors for their support and guidance – we have an exciting year ahead of continuing to place Australia as a global leader in education, technology, and innovation.
