Opened on February 14, 2018, the Sydney Startup Hub helps cement the harbour city’s reputation as Australia’s startup capital. Take a look inside:
A bold and ambitious move by the NSW Government, the 17,000sqm space is designed to spark innovation, strengthen and increase diversity in the startup community (with more startups from regional NSW and non-ICT industries), and grow a pipeline of future job-creating businesses across the state.
Global powerhouse Microsoft is the latest in a growing list of residents from a range of industry sectors. Incubator residents include Stone & Chalk, Fishburners, Tank Stream Labs and The Studio; corporate and government residents include Microsoft’s Accelerator program, Caltex’s C-Lab, Transport for NSW’s Future Transport Digital Accelerator and The Department of Finance, Services and Innovation’s innovation concierge.
There’s also a dedicated space for regional entrepreneurs, opportunities for collaboration and co-working, and a community and event floor designed to host industry-related events that bring the entire startup community together.
