SSE Strategy 2023-2026
Sydney School of Entrepreneurship (SSE) is proud to share Strategy 2023-2026: Building a nationwide culture of entrepreneurialism and shared prosperity. Driven by a belief that entrepreneurship is a powerful catalyst for change and framed by our values – Excellence, Equity, Innovation, Diversity, and Collaboration – Strategy 2023-2026 is focused on improving outcomes for more Australians.
In 2016, the NSW Government catalysed Sydney School of Entrepreneurship with cornerstone investment to build an unprecedented collaboration between all 11 NSW universities and TAFE NSW.
The impetus came from a 2015 Commonwealth Chief Economist research paper that showed startups created 1.44 million jobs across Australia between 2006 and 2011.
SSE was a key plank of the networked innovation ecosystem the NSW Government built under its strategy to embrace innovation and drive jobs growth - supporting a culture of startups and entrepreneurship in Australia.
