University

Education first
As lifelong learners, we can't stress the importance of education enough. Without it, Australia will always fall short of its incredible potential. That’s why we’re delighted to bring together Deakin, Monash, The University of Melbourne, La Trobe, RMIT and Swinburne for the first time ever.
The missing link
Skalata is building a pathway for future founders to make the jump from university, commercialise their knowledge in the 'real world', and take their product to market.
The idea economy
By instilling a commercial mindset at the earliest stages of product development, great ideas will have a chance to flourish, and won't be lost in seas of red tape.
An open dialogue
By bringing all of Victoria's major universities to the table, we're able to facilitate discussions, share knowledge and improve entrepreneurial education for the benefit of future founders everywhere.
On the horizon
We're currently expanding our university network to NSW and Queensland. From Melbourne to Mooloolaba, Perth to Port Lincoln, in time we want to establish an Australia-wide university innovation network.

Corporate

Deep institutional support
Our corporate partners provide founders with extensive financial and legal support, as well as access to diverse networks of potential investors and advisors.
Bell Potter
We've partnered with one of Australia’s leading financial advisory firms to expand our reach to advisors and investors, Australia-wide. With Bell Potter's network, our portfolio companies never need to look beyond Skalata for future growth funding.
PwC
As one of the biggest professional services firm around, PwC help us run workshops on things like incentive schemes, valuations, R&D, grants and ESIC advice. They also provide heavily discounted consulting services to our portfolio companies.
Norton Rose Fulbright
NRT is our principal legal partner and provides a full suite of legal services to Skalata and our portfolio. With a focus on technology and innovation, they’re a natural partner to help support the next generation of great Australian companies.

Government

Change from the top
Developing a globally-connected startup ecosystem will deliver immense economic and cultural benefits for Australia. But to move the innovation needle, we need to work hard with policy makers.
LaunchVic
Through LaunchVic, Skalata Ventures has the enviable support of the Victorian State Government. Since its inception, LaunchVic has been instrumental in fostering and growing Victoria's startup scene.
