Networking and Partnerships
North Sydney Chamber of Commerce and North Sydney Council are two groups that currently provide support to business in the North Sydney area. Similar groups are active in the Strathfield area, in addition to the Sydney Catholic Business network.
North Sydney Council
Following the initial six month incubator period, access to affordable business accommodation could be available through partnership with North Sydney Council.
North Sydney Council has recently taken possession of the vacated North Sydney Police Station and has committed to refurbishing the premises to provide co-working spaces for SMEs and supported office space to facilitate the post-incubation phase and continued mentoring in partnership with ACU.
Local Chambers of Commerce
Members of local Chambers of Commerce are being approached to participate in the program as network members, and host a co-working space for local businesses.
The Collaborate Plus co-working space will provide opportunities for SMEs to network with these and other partners.
