Future Anything National Grand Final 2023



Support school-age 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 2023, 65 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 award-winning Activate program.

Join us as teams go head-to-head to win the support to launch their ideas into the real world in the National Grand Final 2023. 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 and welcome 2023’s inductees to the Future Anything Hall of Fame.

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

We extend warm thanks to the Office of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur and Advance Queensland for their generous support of this event.
