Company Overview

De Stefano & Co is a defence-focused management and security consultancy that assists businesses from across Australia and the globe in navigating the complex Australian defence industry environment.

As Defence Industry Experts, De Stefano & Co specialise in supporting SMEs through to Fortune 500 companies who are currently supplying to Defence, as well as those who wish to establish or grow their defence sector revenues.

From the development of strategies to help businesses acclimatise to the defence industry environment – such as our proprietary Defence Industry Market Entry (DIME®) Program – through to applying for grant funding to purchase new plant and equipment that will allow businesses to increase their capability and capacity, our team has decades of experience in supporting clients to achieve their growth ambitions.
