Lessons from Australia: How to succeed in EdTech

Join a panel of experts discussing their journey to success in the Education Technology Industry in Australia.

What's it all about?

Join us for a panel discussion on how to grow your EdTech business in overseas markets. Presented by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise in conjunction with Global Victoria, this session aims to share learnings from successful Educational Technology companies in Victoria, Australia in order to help firms understand the factors and steps that lead to business success. This session will help viewers to hit the ground running and be better equipped when looking to work in Victoria and wider Australia.

This webinar will be relevant to businesses in the Education Technology industry who are looking to grow their business globally, most specifically into Victoria, Australia; as well as learning more about innovative EdTech solutions.

With the close geographic proximity between New Zealand and Australia, Victoria, the size of our respective economies, and cultural similarities, the decision for a growing tech company in NZ to enter into the Australian market is often viewed as a natural pathway for their growth.

The key takeaway for this panel is for you to learn about the factors and steps that led to Victorian firms’ being successful. This will better equip you to make decisions about entry into the Australian market and be able to hit the ground running.

We will cover:

• The commercialisation process of each panel member’s business
• The decision criteria and process to go global
• How to select relevant markets to enter
• Advice on how to set up in Victoria as an New Zealand Business
• It will also be of interest to schools and other educational institutions to learn more about technology in Education

You should be present for the whole duration of this event.
