The NSW Government, through Jobs for NSW, has funded the Sydney Startup Hub (SSH) — an exciting and ambitious initiative creating a central destination for the NSW startup sector.
Located at 11-31 York Street in Sydney’s CBD, the SSH brings together a range of physical, technological and networking resources — making them available to startups throughout NSW.
An Australian first, the SSH will cement Sydney’s position as an internationally leading startup location and innovation destination — serving the metropolitan, regional, national and international startup community.
