Compared to a young Steve Jobs after turning a year nine business project into a thriving business, Scott is a 21-year-old CEO that has taken an alternative career pathway, turning down scholarship offers to run his company full time, now with a growing presence around the world. BOP Industries is a Brisbane based education company on the mission to inspire the next generation of digital creators, showing students around the world how they can do amazing things at any age from anywhere.
With a focus on entrepreneurship, technology and the future of work, Scott and his team are working to build a generation of change makers.
Generation Z, those born after the year 1995, are a generation unlike any other that has come before.
Growing up in a world of touch screen devices and constant connectivity, this generation often learns how to use devices before they learn how to speak. And it’s this unique development that has coined them the nickname of the ‘Digital Natives’.
Now you may see this as a bad thing, but this generation don’t see screen time and constant connectivity as a bad thing, we see technology as an extension of us, and as a tool to help us connect, collaborate and learn.
