In the ever-evolving landscape of education technology, innovation and impact are the driving forces behind progress. HolonIQ, a global education intelligence platform, recently unveiled its annual list of the most promising EdTech startups from Australia and New Zealand, known as the “Australia & New Zealand EdTech 50.” This prestigious list recognizes the top 50 educational technology companies in the region, and this year, OctopusBI has proudly secured its place among the elite.
The Australia & New Zealand EdTech 50 is a testament to the relentless pursuit of excellence in education technology, spotlighting pioneers who are reshaping the way we learn, teach, and upskill. The selection process is rigorous and comprehensive, employing data and insights from the HolonIQ Impact Intelligence Platform, qualitative assessments by HolonIQ’s Intelligence Unit, and the invaluable input of local market experts.
As HolonIQ’s recent announcement noted, this year’s list showcases a more mature cohort of EdTech startups, reflecting the challenges of early-stage startups in a competitive and tight funding environment. Among the highlights of the 2023 EdTech 50, B2B models take center stage, while digital learning infrastructure continues to thrive as established players expand their role as trusted partners in the learner journey. Notably, K12 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) solutions, including XR (Extended Reality) technologies, are seeing growth, underscoring the renewed emphasis on enhancing the learner experience.
