After a twelve-month journey, Sydney School of entrepreneurship will open its doors later this year, welcoming students from all 11 NSW universities and TAFE NSW as part of an unprecedented partnership.

Deputy Premier John Barilaro, Minister Roberts and Professor Mary O’Kane, all instrumental figures in the establishment of SSE, were in attendance this morning and continued to shine a light on the importance on entrepreneurial education in NSW.

With the vision for encouraging entrepreneurial thinking, Nick spoke of the success of Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship and how it will inform operations in Sydney as well as the important role the school will play in continuing to see NSW at the forefront of entrepreneurship in Australia and the Asia-Pacific Region.

This morning’s seminar was beamed across 20 NSW locations hosted by member institutions including TAFE NSW (Albury, Illawarra, Orange and St Leonards), Southern Cross University Lismore, the University of Newcastle, Charles Sturt University in Bathurst, and the University of New England in Armidale.

In Sydney, we were well covered by Macquarie University, the University of Technology Sydney, UNSW, Sydney University,  Australian Catholic University and and Western Sydney University.
