Curio, an education consulting, learning design and platform development business, has been recognised as one of Australia’s fastest-growing companies under five years old.
Curio has been included in the Australian Financial Review 100 Fast Starters List 2018 and ranked 14th by revenue growth. This is the second year Curio has made the Fast Starters List.
Now in its 29th year, the Fast Starters List is an annual event to find Australia’s fastest growing businesses under five years old.
Many of Australia’s most recognisable businesses started out as Fast Starters, including Atlassian, Boost Juice, SEEK and Grill’d.
In the previous financial year, Curio achieved an annual revenue growth figure of over 250% per cent. Dr. David Bowser, Curio’s Founder and CEO, is delighted with Curio’s consecutive inclusion in Fast Starters List: “This result represents our clients’ continued faith in our approach and our team’s drive to further human improvement through the power of education.”
“We’re not traditional management consultants. We identify an industry pain point and build a solution to address it. Our value is the ability for our solutions to be tailored and scaled across multiple clients.”

Dr. Bowser attributes Curio’s strong, continued growth to its solution-oriented model: “We’re not traditional management consultants. We identify an industry pain point and build a solution to address it. Our value is the ability for our solutions to be tailored and scaled across multiple clients.”
Sessions and Academy, two of Curio’s digital solutions, are changing the way universities and vocational education providers manage resources and deliver learning experiences. Sessions, Australia’s only platform for recruiting and managing sessional educators, has over 10,000 users. Academy, a scalable online learning delivery business, facilitates delivery to 4,500 learners each year for a number of top universities, corporates and vocational education providers.
In the next year, Curio plans to further invest in its core business – working with government, universities, vocational education, schools and corporate training providers to design and deliver effective education for future needs.
