EduGrowth Australian EdTech Census 2017

When we launched EduGrowth in mid 2016 with the aim of driving more innovation and technology into the education industry, we knew that a huge amount of that innovation and technology already existed inside Australia's education technology industry. What we didn't know until now was the story of what that industry looked like in great detail.

The inaugural EduGrowth Australian EdTech Census results that you see on this page prove that we have a fast growing and diverse edtech industry that is only going to continue to grow year on year.

Thank you to the participants that took part in the survey, to our founding members and to the EduGrowth community.

Survey Respondents:

The census was focused on education technology startups within Australia that were currently running an edtech company and individuals or teams with an idea for an edtech startup that will start in the next 6 to 12 months.
