Jobs for NSW will hold a program of free events highlighting the role start-ups play in the economy during CeBIT Australia 2017 next week.

The government-backed organisation will hold activities including a showcase of 12 of the state’s most promising start-ups at CeBIT Australia’s Startup Zone.

CeBIT Australia will be held at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour on 23–25 May.

On the first day of the major technology conference, Jobs for NSW will also co-host with TEDx Haymarket an evening of presentations and debate covering how collaboration between government, business, education and community leaders can prepare for the future of skilled work.

The organisation will also hold a networking event for technology entrepreneurs on the second day.

On the third day, Jobs for NSW CEO Karen Borg will meanwhile join SBS Finance Editor Ricardo Goncalves and a panel of Australian entrepreneurs at the CeBIT Startup Conference, and the organisation will be the presenting partner at FinTech Australia's annual Finnie Awards.

“NSW is Australia’s start-up capital, home to 41% of the nation’s start-up founders and 42% of its start-up support network, and [CeBIT Australia] will be a great opportunity to shine a light on the increasing role start-ups are playing in all our lives,” Borg said.

“As well as focusing on future investment and job opportunities, it will also be a chance to celebrate the more than 150 start-ups that Jobs for NSW has already helped grow with assistance from the NSW Government’s $190 million Jobs for NSW fund.”
