About Gemstar

Gems are rare commodities in high demand. And there are many hidden gems in Australia’s technology sector –technologies that need to have light shone on them and be bought to market in Australia but also accessed in regional and global markets. GemStar is a company that has a clear vision to help achieve this.

Gemstar is not your typical accelerator or incubator.

We’re highly personalised in our partnering approach with fast-growth companies, and our programs are also highly targeted. This ensures we deliver sustainable outcomes and that there is substance in everything we do.

Our results-driven approach is underpinned by a philosophy of nurture and care as there are many smiling tigers out there!

We are experienced business people, managers and entrepreneurs. We’ve built companies before from scratch and helped to expand bigger companies so we know what it takes.

We bring you insights and experience in the areas that matter most – strategic marketing, finance and commercialisation, business development and growth strategies.

We bring extensive experience in the Australian and Asian markets, bringing technology firms immediate expertise, experience and relationships, not found elsewhere.

We take advantage of not only domestic but international commercial opportunities, especially in the region through a strong network.

We provide a platform for key tech stakeholders to easily collaborate, pursue research and commercial opportunities.

We use our broad international network to connect you to the right partners at the right level creating the tailored opportunities you need to expand and reducing wasted time and effort in doing so.
