Across the world, educational institutions are under pressure to keep classrooms up to date with technology and keep curriculums relevant to the demands of today's jobs. Fortunately, Victorian startups are in a prime place to develop technologies to transform how people learn, especially considering the number of renowned schools and universities located right here in Victoria's capital.

In the true spirit of collaboration, we have partnered with EduGrowth (http://www.edugrowth.com.au/) and Education Changemakers (http://educationchangemakers.com/) this month to showcase four up-and-coming startups, that are revolutionising and empowering the EduTech industry. This event is a lead up to to the big EC17 event, which you can learn more about at EduChange (http://educhange.com.au/). For education entrepreneurs and investors be sure to check out the Tuesday event Edupreneur (http://educhange.com.au/edupreneur) and use the word FRIENDS for $90 tickets.
