An Accelerator centre powered by partnership

What it means to be a partner

At STAC we focus on helping our cohort accelerate their growth and build globally competitive businesses. Our tech and business ecosystem is proudly built on a culture of collaboration and partnership is a critical part of our operations.

As a not-for-profit organisation, our partners not only directly fund our work, but also form a network of trusted STAC service providers. Our closest partners have the opportunity to form deep connections with the cohort, over meaningful periods of time, as they develop and grow.

Our goal with our sponsorship program is to provide your organisation with the opportunity to get more deeply and directly involved with the local start-up ecosystem in a way that adds value to both your organisation and the cohort companies.
