News | Cutting edge digital tools, innovation luminaries and quantum tech specialists are coming together to supercharge Australia’s most ambitious innovation engine – Sydney’s Tech Central.

The game-changing initiatives and partnerships announced today by Minister Ayres and Minister Dominello will maximise the impact of the infrastructure, industry, and institutions already in Tech Central and attract further investment in the area.

New initiatives include a new Scaleup Hub operated by Stone & Chalk at 477 Pitt Street, accommodation rebates for growing tech companies, state of the art digital connectivity and a new interactive digital twin to help people explore the precinct.

In addition, Q-CTRL and Sydney Quantum Academy are now in place at the Quantum Terminal, Tech Central’s first specialised collaboration space for quantum technology researchers, developers, programmers, engineers and entrepreneurs.

Chief Commissioner Geoff Roberts said the Greater Sydney Commission is proud to be a key collaborator, along with Investment NSW, in Tech Central and a longstanding champion for innovation.

“The 2018 Greater Sydney Region Plan was clear that innovation precincts enabled by infrastructure are absolutely essential to Sydney’s success as a leader in the knowledge economy,” Mr Roberts said.

“Tech Central already offers a unique clustering of universities, research institutes, cultural institutions and innovation industry heavyweights. Today’s announcements reflect an investment in the future, and the skills, jobs and technologies that will power it.”

“Tomorrow’s Sydney is being created today, and it’s happening at Tech Central.”

More information on the Commission’s work at Tech Central is available on our website. The Tech Central website has also been launched today.
