Western Sydney Startup Hub open for business
An innovative new hub for Western Sydney’s brightest startups, scaleups and businesses has opened its doors in the heart of Parramatta.
Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade Alister Henskens said the Western Sydney Startup Hub (WSSH), operated by Spacecubed, will empower the region’s next generation of entrepreneurs to network, collaborate and grow the economy.
“WSSH is the latest addition to Sydney’s vibrant startup ecosystem, cementing Sydney as our country’s innovation capital,” Mr Henskens said.
“It will provide business owners with the facilities they need to prosper, along with a diverse range of services and programs to support their growth.”
Located in the revitalised Parramatta North Heritage Precinct, WSSH offers 1,500 square metres of affordable co-working space.
Minister for Planning Anthony Roberts said that the completion of the WSSH is a step forward in the revitalisation of Parramatta North.
“WSSH is combining technology and culture to drive innovation and encourages more visitors to take advantage of the rich culture and history that Parramatta North has to offer,” Mr Roberts said.
Minister for Transport, Veterans and Western Sydney David Elliott said the WSSH will be a platform for the region’s booming tech and innovation industries.
“WSSH is a powerhouse dedicated to bringing together Western Sydney’s next generation of entrepreneurs and experts to collaborate on new technologies and innovative products,” Mr Elliott said.
“As one of the fastest growing areas in Sydney, WSSH will go a long way to help grow the State’s economy and build a brighter future for NSW.”
Member for Parramatta Geoff Lee said the new hub would create even more jobs for Western Sydney.
“The hub will go a long way to providing innovation opportunities while adding to Western Sydney’s expansive business offerings,” Mr Lee said.
“The NSW Government continues to invest in our region to ensure Western Sydney’s future as a global destination for innovation and technology.”
Spacecubed Founder and Managing Director Brodie McCulloch said businesses are encouraged to visit the space and experience the hub firsthand.
“WSSH welcomes startups and small-to-medium enterprises in a collaborative, affordable and supportive environment,” Mr McCulloch said.
