THE NSW GOVERNMENT HAS INVESTED $25 MILLION IN A SCHOOL FOR THE STATE’S BUDDING ENTREPRENEURS

The Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE), which opened its doors today, is a partnership between all 11 NSW universities and TAFE NSW, with aim being to develop the next generation of entrepreneurs and build out the local startup ecosystem.

Founded with a $25 million cornerstone investment by the NSW Government, the SSE campus is located in Ultimo in a building which originally served as a shoe factory and then a school of fashion and footwear.

Deputy Premier John Barilaro, who formally opened SSE, expects at least 1,000 student entrepreneurs will participate in SSE courses and activities during their degree or TAFE program, each year, once the school is fully operational.

The SSE will be run by Australian Nick Kaye, who has spent ten years as the head of the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship.

Kaye, the school’s founding CEO, said it has launched its first pilot course for student entrepreneurs – called ‘The Navigator’ – with the first of two three-day intensives complemented by online study. Read more
