CAPITAL TO TURN IDEAS INTO ACTION

Raise the capital required to turn your ideas into action. Since 2015, Stone & Chalk startups have collectively raised over $500m+ in capital investment. We have developed an exclusive investor community to encourage, activate and increase investment opportunities.

Stone & Chalk has developed an extensive investor community which includes angel and high net worth investors, venture and corporate venture capital funds as well as a suite of other strategic investors. A core ingredient to our success has been our programs aimed at encouraging and activating more Angel Investors from within Australia’s existing population of High Net Worth Individuals. We regularly run skills studios through our investor partners, listen to propositions, provide valuable feedback on pitch decks and guidance to help you become investor ready. Stone & Chalk’s investment network is global and we have successfully supported companies to raise capital in markets across countries such as Japan, Singapore, US and the UK.

Our signature Stone & Chalk MentorMatch™️ Program encompasses an impressive pool of mentors, carefully chosen and then matched to your specific growth needs, providing a trusted sounding board and facilitating introductions to attract the right customers, investors and talent.

We also provide you with access to consultations on a complimentary basis with highly-experienced domain experts and run regular skills studios exclusively for our startups. Our experienced Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) provides bespoke guidance to our resident startup community by helping Stone & Chalk Founders accelerate and reach national and international markets as the in-house startup business expert and highly-experienced startup domain expert. The EIR is responsible for offering ongoing one-on-one personalised guidance, coaching and invaluable advice for founders at all stages of their business lifecycle.

It’s great working as a startup at Stone & Chalk because it gives you that excess capacity that you wouldn’t have in a small team. It’s a valuable resource, where you can have meetings with your clients right in the heart of the city, as well as the ability to network with a lot of different high-calibre companies.
