1 March 2018 – Leading Australian tech and co-working hub, Tank Stream Labs has today opened a Perth Start Up Hub following the recent expansion into a new $35 million Sydney Hub.
Tank Stream Labs CEO, Brad Delamare, said this is the first east coast co-working space to set up in Western Australia and it’s the logical next step for Tank Stream Labs to connect the west and east coast start-up ecosystems and accelerate the growth of the Perth market.
“We have recently seen a lot of Perth based start up businesses coming to Sydney looking for funding, resources and talent so our decision to expand to the West Coast makes logical sense.
“Our focus is to support the growth and commercialisation of Australian ventures and Perth presents a lot of opportunities for start up businesses with high-net worth individuals looking to invest along with the opportunities to collaborate with major companies with Perth-based headquarters,” Brad Delamare said.
The new Hub located at the Perth Offices of EY will have an initial 50 desks with the potential to expand based on market demand.
“Our focus is to support Australian start up ventures to allow then to scale up and commercialise with a global focus. The proximity of Perth to Asia and the expansion of direct flights to Europe are alluring factors for businesses looking for international growth.
“The expansion of Tank Stream Labs to Perth follows the strong growth of our two Hubs in Sydney where we now have more than 400 start up operations along with 550 members. We now have the talent to support innovation and collaboration from the east to the west coast,” Brad Delamare said.
