National FutureSchools Expo has up to 15 heavily subsidised Start-up Pods available within the exhibition for small Australian start-ups that meet the approval of the National FutureSchools Expo team, as well as the criteria below.

In addition, as part of our commitment to the start-up community, we also have a limited number of FREE Pods. (approved at the discretion of the organiser)
