Most conferences look and feel the same - boring convention centres, with sandwiches at lunch then trays of drinks at the end. We do things a little differently.

Edupreneur 2017 is being held at our favourite co-working space, One Roof. DJs will be mixing beats throughout the day and sessions are fast paced and practical. Tasty treats are cooked up by an awesome bunch of newly arrived Australians from Free To Feed, with sweets being served up the poverty busting food truck Crepes for Change. At the event party, toast all of your new connections with wine from Kooks, and beers from Stone and Wood, our two favourite world changing drinks companies.



We are a B Corp that fuses entrepreneurship and innovation. We work with 25,000 teachers a year and help accelerate K-12 startups across Australia, the UK, Asia and Africa.

At Edupreneur 2017 you will meet with and hear from investors doing actual deals into Australian education companies, rather than those who just talk about it!

One of the most powerful ways to learn is to hear from people who have been there, done that andgot the t-shirt. At Edupreneur 2017 we have a bunch of proven education entrepreneurs speaking.

Edupreneur 2017 is a democratic space, where you might find yourself sharing a nutella crepe or a
frothie with your next investor, co-founder, acquirer or education buyer.
