Get connected in Australia’s innovation destination


Welcome!

Ryde is Australia’s innovation destination; home to switched-on, growing small businesses and some of the world’s best known brands in IT, pharmaceuticals and electronics. We’re NSW’s fastest-growing city, home to more than 13,000 businesses.

So how do you connect? Through Ryde Business Forum, our services, our events and local Chambers of Commerce – see our Events Calendar. You never know when someone’s going to give a referral for you, and they ideally need to know you before they can recommend you. The more you mix with members, the more recommendations you make!

RBF was awarded Winner of the Local Chamber of Commerce Award at the NSW Business Chamber’s 2015 North Eastern Sydney Business Awards. This is recognition that as a local Chamber of Commerce we have the interests of our members at heart and are constantly measuring our organisation with other leading Chambers to ensure we follow best practice.
