A new Sydney Tech Central scaleup hub opened today on Pitt Street, further cementing the district’s position as the premier tech innovation centre in the country. 

Tech Central Scaleup Hub, operated by Stone & Chalk, is aimed at helping Australian tech scaleups and startups grow, create new jobs and attract world-leading companies to New South Wales, said Minister for Enterprise Investment and Trade Alister Henskens. 

“The Scaleup Hub is right in the heart of Sydney’s Tech Central District and is at the forefront of the NSW Government’s strategy to attract investment, accelerate growth and ensure the jobs of the future are created here in NSW,” Henskens said.

“Set across six levels and 8,000 square metres of open and flexible space, the hub will help draw companies to Sydney and continue our push to make Sydney the major technology hub of the Asia Pacific,” the minister added. 

Michael Bromley, chief executive officer of Stone & Chalk, said several innovative tech companies working in advanced manufacturing, financial technology, and education have already begun working in the hub, with more expected to be added. 

“We are calling on cutting-edge companies looking to expand and grow to set up in the scaleup hub and take advantage of all the exciting opportunities that Tech Central has to offer,” Bromley said. 

Omer Tangi, country manager of new resident company Nano Dimension, said the hub’s proximity to industry experts and institutions, such as the University of Technology, was one of the facility’s primary drawcards. 

“As an international scaleup this is our first location in Australia and we are excited to be around other innovative scale-ups as we use advanced 3D printing technologies to reshape and redefine the future of electronics production,” Tangi said.

“Proximity to world-class universities such as UNSW and UTS plus other Tech Central residents including Atlassian, Commonwealth Bank and Cicada Innovations is great for our growing company,” he added. 

The new scaleup hub will help NSW reach its goal of bringing over 25,000 future-focused innovation jobs into the state.
