Lot Fourteen welcomes Google to the innovation precinct as the global tech giant sets up its Adelaide base.
After welcoming Amazon in February, Lot Fourteen is rapidly establishing an innovation and hi-tech ecosystem, collocating like-minded businesses in the central city setting.
The precinct is attracting some of the world’s most innovative brands and businesses leading the industries of the future, energising the careers of young people who see a future in South Australia full of opportunity and potential.
Premier Steven Marshall says the move will enhance SA's growing hi-tech reputation and create jobs.
"South Australia has world-leading capabilities in artificial intelligence, data analytics and cyber security that make us globally interesting and provides digital tech companies with an opportunity to come together to partner on projects that can literally change the world we live in," Mr Marshall said.
Google’s Cloud public sector team at Lot Fourteen will work across health and medical research. The hub will also be a training and event venue for its customers and partners.
Google Cloud public sector director in Australian and New Zealand Michael Grantham said SA’s health capabilities were closely aligned with Google Cloud’s strategic priorities.
“We look forward to working with the government, other technology partners at Lot Fourteen and business to support South Australia’s economy,” he said.
Google's Adelaide operations will be headed up by Mike Duhne who said SA's commitment to the technology sector provided a unique environment for innovation and collaboration.
Lot Fourteen brings together entrepreneurs and innovators from South Australia’s leading abilities in space, defence, hi-tech and creative industries in a precinct designed and curated as a collaborative ecosystem.
