EduGrowth is Australia’s education technology and innovation industry hub. Through connection and collaboration, we accelerate Australia’s EdTech ecosystem globally.

We connect a community of educators, education providers, government representatives, consultants, investors, and EdTech entrepreneurs committed to reimagining learning in the digital age.

As education continues to transition to borderless digital delivery, our diverse ecosystem will have a greater impact on the future of learning globally.

Our programs focus on developing the entire education technology and innovation sector.

We have a range of services supporting EdTech companies at each stage of their journey, whilst also connecting educators, education providers and industry participants with the broader ecosystem.

HISTORY & TIMELINE

2015

National consultation via roundtables with Australia’s international education and EdTech sectors identified the opportunity that exists for Australia to be a leader in digital borderless education. This work formed Austrade’s AIE2025 strategy.

2016

Participants identified the need for an independent organisation to champion Australia’s EdTech ecosystem and foster the connection, and collaboration among industry players locally and globally, with the goal of accelerating the entire Australian EdTech ecosystem.

Six Foundation Universities supported the establishment of EduGrowth.

2016 - 2017

EduGrowth Phase 1 – EdTech Accelerator

During this establishment period, EduGrowth operated full-time accelerator and pre-accelerator programs.

2018 onwards

EduGrowth Phase 2 – Australia’s EdTech and Innovation Industry Hub

Repositioned as the champion of the entire Australian EdTech ecosystem. Our core objective is to grow the sector as a whole through frameworks, tools, resources and services that support the development, adoption and deployment of new EdTech products and services.
