Stormseal Industries Pty Ltd

Organisational Profile

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.

Services Provided

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.

Within a very tight timeframe, the gemaker team absorbed our information dump, digested it and then dug deeper to ensure that they could present the best case for Government funding of our startup. Natalie and her crew devoted themselves to aiding Stormseal with extraordinary dedication and hard work.

gemaker’s thorough research, strategic approach and high quality writing paid off: Stormseal was awarded a $450,000 ACG in April 2016. The importance of this funding to Stormseal cannot be overstated.

We were so impressed that we subsequently appointed gemaker as Stormseal’s primary commercialisation advisors. gemaker has provided us with PR management and a wide range of marketing and communication services, as well as intellectual property advice and other business development support. They continue to refine our branding and messaging and are constantly seeking new opportunities to promote Stormseal’s success in Australia and overseas. We are extremely satisfied with their services and feel that these critical aspects of Stormseal’s development are in very safe hands.
