Sydney School of Entrepreneurship to be modelled after SSES

In Australia, a Sydney School of Entrepreneurship is set to be established by the NSW state government, universities, and vocational education organisations, providing a platform for technological innovation and startups in the region.

The Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE) will launch with a budget of $25 million, and will be modelled after the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship (SSES), allowing 1000 students from member universities to participate each year. The school sourced its inspiration from the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship and "will foster the emergence of small innovative companies with the potential for rapid growth – and that means job creation", says NSW Treasurer Gladys Berejiklian. The decision was finalised after a recent visit to the region by SSES Executive Director Nick Kaye, who participated in a forum at the invitation of NSW chief scientist Mary O'Kane earlier this year.

The Australian Minister of Industry estimates that the startup sector could be worth over $100 billion, and could create more than half a million jobs by 2033. Read more about the Australian initiative initiative here.
