16 Feb Congratulations to Jobs for NSW on the official launch of the Sydney Startup Hub.
We would like to congratulate Jobs for NSW on the official launch of the Sydney Startup Hub, which took place inside the Wynyard Green building at 11-31 York Street this week.
PDS Group commenced works as Project Manager and Lessor Representative in May 2017 working closely with Jobs for NSW to ensure the challenging delivery model could be successfully achieved within the short timeframes required.
Celebrations were certainly in full swing with the announcement of tech giant Microsoft confirming they have secured space in the Hub for their ScaleUp accelerator program. This is a huge achievement for Sydney and Australia and will help take start-up development in Australia to the next level. Sydney is now the eighth global location for this program following the likes of Seattle, Beijing, Berlin and London. New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian said that it was a “huge” vote of confidence in the city: “Last July the New South Wales Government committed $35 million to create a world leading start-up and innovation hub and today we can see what has been created”.
Spanning 17,000 square metres across eleven floors, the building is now officially home to a number of other innovative businesses such as: Stone & Chalk, Fishburners, Tank Stream Labs, The Studio, Westpac’s FEULD, H2 Ventures, Slingshot, Transport for NSW’s Future Transport Digital Accelerator, the Department of Finance and Services, and an innovation team from Caltex’s C-Lab.
We are extremely proud to have been part of this initiative that not only supports small businesses and products but also connects people to facilitate collaborative thinking to strengthen and accelerate the start-up community.
