First things first.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri-willam people of the Kulin Nation who are the traditional custodians of the land on which our tiny studio stands.

We’d also like to pay respect to the elders past and present of the Wurundjeri people and Kulin Nation and extend that respect to all Aboriginal people.

Our crew backs Reconciliation Australia’s vision of a reconciled, just and equitable Australia.

Our mission is to build the 21st century standard for social impact education..

More about our purpose over here.

Will and Luke started this in '13 as startup-style accelerator for non-tech peeps, with a social impact focus.

We ran our flagship accelerator in 2014 with 25 students and 40 teachers + mentors in Donkey Wheel house.

Since, we’ve worked with researchers, universities and businesses to figure out different ways to do education.

We’ve worked through more methods with more people that we could possibly write down.

In early 2016 we decided to go online-first, so we can reach the world by default.

Our teaching approach was originally inspired by Will’s grandfather, refined through countless classes, workshops, intensives, seminars, mentoring programs and wine-drenched heart-to-hearts.

More about our purpose

Thank you to the early crew:

Massive thanks, in no particular order, to that original teachers and mentors who made the first big accelerator happen.

These folks are world-class at what they do, and we’re truly honoured to have their support right at the start. <3
