Adam founded illuminate Education in 2010 to help more young Australians become the entrepreneurs, leaders, small business champions and changemakers of the future, partnering with corporate organisations, universities and government to reach over 6500 students across Australia. He is also heavily involved in small business and innovative opportunities in Launceston and Northern Tasmania where he is based with his wife and two sons, but frequently travels to communities to share his insights and deliver engaging education experiences.

Conference Topic

Entrepreneurship For All

Breaking down the barriers through teaching the 'hidden rules' of business to all.

Tasmania's economy needs more innovators and entrepreneurs to maximise the opportunities that our state provides - but for some, this seems out of reach for reasons beyond their control. Adam Mostogl of illuminate Education (Top 30 Under 30 Australian Entrepreneurs in 2017 & Tasmanian Young Australian of the Year 2015) will share his experience of running entrepreneurship education programs over 6500 students across Australia as well as delivering Australia's first self-employment accelerator for people with intellectual and sensory disabilities in partnership with St Giles with support from the Australian Government, to help realise the role we can all play in helping more people become confident in business, their jobs and generally in themselves.
