Sydney has an established knowledge economy with financial services and ICT the big players. But emerging sectors are also blossoming: the “upstart startups”. In the fourth of six films from the New South Wales (NSW) capital we visit Stone & Chalk – an incubator for fintech businesses – and also the UTS Business School. Not only does this college offer an MBA in entrepreneurship… it also has just moved into an amazing new building by legendary architect Frank Gehry that is actually engineered to enable collaboration and innovation. Other university campuses across NSW are also thriving. The film is introduced by BESydney Chief Executive Officer Lyn Lewis-Smith.
