Read on to learn more about how the NSW Government is creating jobs by providing support for high-potential startups, fast-growth small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and high impact export sectors in NSW.

Led by business, backed by government

You will receive the support of some of the best business-minds in Australia, and the backing of the NSW Government. Our entrepreneurial experience and connections to government mean we’re uniquely placed to help your up-and-coming business unlock its potential.

Growing your export business

We’ll accelerate and expand key export sectors, starting with tourism and international education. We will achieve this by convening government and business, advocating within government to reduce red tape and unlocking business opportunities to enable sustainable job growth.

Support for rural and regional job creation

Thirty per cent of the Jobs for NSW Fund is allocated to regional and rural businesses operating outside the major cities of Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong, and will be invested in those start-ups and fast-growth SMEs that will have the greatest impact in regional job creation.

A place for your high-potential business to thrive

We’ll use our private sector partnerships with financial institutions and accelerators and incubators to create a dynamic community that supports entrepreneurs, startups and SMEs to become the job-creating companies of the future. As well as receiving financial support, you will benefit from targeted events where you can learn from others across common industries and stages of business growth.
