Austin Cowan

Regional Account Director - ANZ, Coursera

Austin has worked for edtech startups in Australia, San Francisco and London. Most recently he was managing product direction, mergers and acquisitions in APAC for Instructure, the makers of Canvas, an LMS. He currently works for Coursera, expanding rapidly in Australia in their strategy team. In his spare time he works on a project called ‘autopsy’, tracking the lessons learned from failed startups. It’s this global perspective in edtech; and the people and culture failures with Autopsy—that gives a unique perspective on the state of learning and development trends.
