Mr Nick Kaye
CEO, Sydney School of Entrepreneurship presents:
AN ECOSYSTEM, SATELLITES AND A STAGE: SETTING UP SYDNEY'S SCHOOL OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP
Twelve months in the making, the new Sydney School of Entrepreneurship is about to open its doors. Its aim is to support progressive entrepreneurialism and spur on Australia's startup culture.
The joint venture between the state's public universities and TAFE NSW has the potential to place Sydney and NSW at the epicentre of entrepreneurship in the Asia-Pacific, and put Australia on the startup map.
The prestigious school will target bright, energetic, creative and committed students from a range of disciplines, and teach them practical entrepreneurial skills as part of their uni degree or TAFE course - skills that are also key to building the workforce of the future.
Modelled on the esteemed Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship, and headed up by its respected former CEO, Melbourne-born Nick Kaye, the Sydney school will hope to replicate the Swedes' success.
More than a third of all graduates from the Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship have successfully launched startups, including two high-profile 'unicorns' valued above $1billion.
Nick Kaye will share his hopes for the $25 million NSW Government-led initiative when he presents: An Ecosystem, Satellites and a Stage: Setting up Sydney's School of Entrepreneurship.
