Meet the Activators

Supporting the next generation of Aussie changemakers

Every school participating in Future Anything’s Activate program is connected with an ‘Activator’.

Acting as their very own ‘Entrepreneur in Residence’, Activators work with a participating school, supporting their teachers and students as a mentor, sounding board, and cheerleader as they work through Activate

The Activator’s goal is to help to connect learning in the classroom to life outside the school gates.  

Want to bring an Activator to your school?


Future Anything is proud to welcome a cohort of epic humans who will generously volunteer their time to support the next generation of Aussie innovators and changemakers in 2023.

We’ll be announcing our 2023 Activators soon!


Future Anything’s Activate program empowers young people to design innovative, sustainable, and scalable solutions to the problems they care about. It’s delivered by educators in their own classrooms over one or two terms and culminates in their school’s very own ‘shark tank’ or showcase.

Activate teachers receive professional development and support, and extensive curriculum resources and assessment tools – everything they need to build enterprising mindsets in their classrooms.

Plus, students have the opportunity to take their ideas to our high-profile national competition with young people pitching for funding and support to launch their ideas into the real world.
