Applications Open: New program targets productivity-boosting startups

Stone & Chalk and KPMG Australia are inviting game-changing startups focused on creating solutions in intelligent performance for the next cohort of their Future Technology Program.

The flagship program combines the largest innovation community in Australia at Stone & Chalk with KPMG’s deep expertise and knowledge, offering startups unrivalled access to strategic support to accelerate their growth.

The challenging economic climate has put immense pressure on productivity, business performance, overheads and revenue growth. To address this growing problem, the fourth cohort of the Future Technology Program will be centred on early-stage founders building technology that enables businesses, governments, and other organisations to maximise and improve performance and productivity across all areas of their operations.

“Most organisations are seeking to drive strategic growth, without compromising customer experience or business performance,” said Karen Parkes, Partner-In-Charge, Customer and Operations Consulting.

Five startup founders and their teams selected will receive complimentary residency for 12 months at one of Stone & Chalk’s startup hubs located in the heart of Sydney, Melbourne or Adelaide. They will receive guidance and support from KPMG’s diverse array of mentors and industry leads who can facilitate client introductions and industry conversations to provide startups with the resources and support they need to grow.

Fifteen startups have now participated in the Future Technology Program since its launch in 2022. In addition to strategic mentorship from KPMG experts, these startups have gained support to raise capital, enter new markets, and engage new customer segments.

Applications are now open and will close on 26 April. Offers will be made in early June, with the program to commence in July.
