The site

The Parramatta North Heritage Core forms part of the greater Parramatta North Program, and is a place of great historic and cultural significance for the local community. Plans to restore and revitalise the broader precinct are currently underway. Building restoration works are currently being undertaken across the Parramatta North Heritage Core.

The estimated opening date for the WSSH is late 2021.

Our vision 

The Western Sydney Startup Hub (WSSH) will be a future-focused and community driven innovation hub that will support the creation and growth of technology startups, scaleups and businesses in Western Sydney.

The WSSH will play a key role in building the local innovation ecosystem of the future Westmead Health & Innovation District (WHID) and Greater Parramatta River City that will allow entrepreneurs to build high growth companies and jobs of the future.

The WSSH will promote and showcase the innovation opportunities in Western Sydney.

The WSSH will be home to a collaborative community that is connected to NSW Lighthouse Precincts, Innovation Ecosystems and Startup Hubs.
