Welcome to StartUp Realm

40% of today’s jobs won’t exist in the next decade; educators are being challenged to produce more innovative thinkers; government is looking for new industries; and business is looking for the next generation of game changers. Where do we start to address this?

StartUp Realm focuses on skills that sit across content areas including creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration.

StartUp Realm helps to develop those skills crucial for developing innovators, thought leaders and entrepreneurs throughout the economy. However these skills are multifaceted and therefore difficult to teach and measure.

An Online Learning Platform

For anyone interested in improving their thinking skills.

A Collection of Tools

Aimed at encouraging curiosity, engaging individuals in the discovery, creation and development of ideas.

Interactive and Engaging Resources

That connects educators, business, parents and students by providing content, resources and ideas for activities.

StartUp Realm is agnostic of subject matter as it focuses on the 21st Century learning skills that can be used in a school, tertiary and corporate environment.

“Business wonders why education isn’t producing the thoughtful, creative, self-confident people they urgently need... We now have a school curriculum that teaches ten subjects but only limited ways of thinking.”
Sir Ken Robinson, Out of Our Minds (Capstone: 2001)
