EduGrowth: What is it, who backs it and how does it help AUS Startups?
Published on 11 July 2017 | Running Time: 30:50
EduGrowth is a national not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting and promoting the edtech sector and is a prominent Australian edtech accelerator network.
We talk with Riley Batchelor, EduGrowth’s CEO, about why the organisation was started, its pre-accelerator and accelerator programs, events, conference, census project, benefits, funding and its “bold ambition to see 100 million learners educated globally per annum, by 2025, through Australian education.” We discuss why the founding members decided to collaborate and what problems they were trying to solve.
We explore education and lifelong learning that affects the future of work and how technology and edtechs continue to push the envelope in collaboration, automation, scalability and personalised learning to change individuals and their professional lives.
Greg Satell’s article, ‘The New Era of Mass Collaboration’ was discussed and the step-change in support of collaboration between universities in recent years as they seek to be more agile and scale the projects they’re working on together.
EduGrowth is supported by founding members: Navitas, Deakin University, La Trobe University, Monash University, Charles Sturt University and Griffith University.
