In a win for Western Sydney’s knowledge economy, National Australia Bank (NAB) has partnered with Western Sydney University’s award-winning Launch Pad Technology Business Incubator.

A significant investment in Launch Pad’s innovative projects is just one part of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed by NAB and the University. The partnership also includes plans for high-rise facilities at Parramatta Square and the development of a graduate program for NAB.

“Western Sydney University’s Launch Pad program has been instrumental in creating a tech start-up ecosystem embedded in Sydney’s west. NAB’s significant investment will translate into more award-winning businesses and ideas for the region,” said Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Scott Holmes.

Anthony Healy, Chief Customer Officer – Business and Private Banking said employment pathways and work experience opportunities for Western Sydney University students at NAB will also be explored.

“Collaborating with academic bodies like Western Sydney University through the Launch Pad Business Incubator ensures we stay connected to the local community and continue to foster local entrepreneurship,” Mr Healy said.
