Future Anything National Grand Final 2022



Support high school entrepreneurs from across Australia as they bend the future, one youth-led idea at a time. 

Future Anything transforms young people’s passion and curiosity into innovative ideas that make the world a better place.

In 2022, nearly 50 Aussie schools have built enterprising mindsets in their classrooms, challenging their students to create innovative, sustainable and scalable solutions to the problem THEY care about through our Activate program.

Join us as our top teams go head-to-head to win funding and support to launch their ideas into the real world in the National Grand Final 2022. There’ll be live pitches, a panel of expert judges, showcase expo and a live People’s Vote. We’ll also unveil the winners of this year’s Future Anything Educator Awards.

Attend in person at The Triffid in Brisbane or watch online live from anywhere in the world! Note that venue seats are limited, so register NOW to secure your free ticket.

Many thanks to Major Event Partner Advance Queensland and Office of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur, and our Bronze Sponsors Blackbird Foundation & Xero for their support of this event.
