Gemstar shines a light on unearthed and polished gems

Our story

Gemstar is not a big 4 or a co-working space - we are a whole lot more!

With operations across Australia, and with our flagship Innovation Centres of Excellence in Singapore and Perth, Gemstar is the perfect ‘landing pad’ and growth partner for any business wanting to expand with the region in mind.

Founded by Gemma Manning, a serial Entrepreneur, Gemma had the idea for Gemstar when she was launching a management consultancy in ASEAN through her marketing company. As she embarked on her own business expansion journey, she always says that she wishes there was a partner like Gemstar to have helped along the way. Providing end-to-end market access and commercialisation services, Gemstar is the shining light for many companies and entrepreneurs alike.

We’re a highly personalised growth business partner, that is accessible, inclusive and is for everyone. Since inception in 2013, Gemstar has become the go-to market access and growth partner for budding talent, start-ups and scale-up companies wanting to accelerate international expansion into ASEAN and Australia confidently and at low-risk
