Stormseal Industries Pty Ltd has developed a patented light weight plastic film that can be used to cover a damaged roof or wall with heat application. Upon application of heat the film shrinks onto any surface without damage, providing protection. It will be used as a superior alternative to tarpaulins in the protection of both homes and other premises in times of catastrophic weather events, during construction or whilst making an insurance claim.
Stormseal approached gemaker to assist them with the completion of an Accelerating Commercialisation Grant Application. Accelerating Commercialisation encourages and supports small to medium business, entrepreneurs and researchers to commercialise novel products, processes and services. The grant application process is a highly competitive, merit based programme and only the strongest grant applications are successful. With gemaker’s support, Stormseal was given a $450,000 grant and subsequently appointed gemaker as their primary advisors in commercialisation. gemaker has provided ongoing marketing consultancy services, IP advice, PR management including coverage in multiple publications, government relations, website project management support, strategies for pitching to targeted audiences, copywriting services, and preparation of marketing collateral.
