About

We're facilitating the jobs of the future by supporting the NSW innovation ecosystem and making our state the most effective place to grow a startup.​​

Our mission

The Sydney Startup Hub offers more than 17,000sqm across 11 floors all under one roof in a convenient CBD location, making it the highest-density startup space in the Southern Hemisphere.

We also optimise and connect communities and hubs across NSW, Australia and globally to accelerate state-wide startup growth and to maximise innovation job creation.​

Our role

We connect, grow, educate, create partnerships, and help to build a culture that enables all actors within the NSW innovation ecosystem to prosper.​​

The high-density concentration helps spark innovation, ignite collaboration, and provide easier and superior access to networks, skills, funding and leadership.
