Meet your peers from across Australia

Our Member Connect event is designed to:

1. Help you connect with other EduGrowth members across the Australian EdTech ecosystem.

2. Provide you with information about EduGrowth as an organisation, our vision for the Australian EdTech sector and how you can get the most out of your membership with us. You will also get a chance to meet the EduGrowth team and learn about our Strategic Partners.

Who should attend?

We welcome all EduGrowth member organisations and their staff.

From Managing Directors to Marketers to Sales to Product Managers to Engineers to Founders – we want all staff within our member organisations to have the opportunity to benefit from the EduGrowth Member Connect Program.

Thought leadership speakers

Jack Goodman founded Studiosity, one of Australia’s first internet-driven EdTech companies, in 2003. At the time he had two children under three and another on the way, and looking back, it’s unclear what he was thinking. Jack has been involved in startups since the mid-1990s and has experienced first-hand both successes and failures. The value of these experiences cannot be overstated. He has an M.Phil. in political theory from Cambridge University and a B.A. from Princeton University. He is also the President of Friends of Libraries Australia, and a mentor for EduGrowth.

Shane Argo is a co-founder of Grade Matter. He has spent his entire career working for Universities, either directly or as a consultant with All the Ducks. In these roles, he has been responsible for the delivery of many successful projects, including a final marks and grades project which inspired the creation of the Grade Matter solution.
