The AFR wrote a piece introducing Quitch, a mobile learning app created by senior lecturer at Swinburne, Grainne Oates. Since its launch in 2015, the app has a remarkable 10,000 student users in nearly a 100 educational institutions worldwide. The platform has enthusiastically been received by schools and universities in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Europe and Asia. It will continue to roll out internationally over the coming years.

The company plans to expand in Asia and will be taking a three-month residency at the Austrade landing pad in Singapore, which was launched as part of the Australian National Innovation and Science Agenda. Quitch was featured as one of the first Australian startups to partner up with Singapore in The Straits Times, the local daily newspaper in Singapore. It was also recently one of the seven Australian delegates that Austrade brought to SXSW Interactive.

mdp’s very own directors Michael McDonald and Sarah Gilkes sit on the board of Scapegrace Pty Ltd. It is a joint venture with Swinburne University and company behind Quitch, with Michael as Chairman.
