Indigenous Business Month: 1st – 31st October.
“Indigenous entrepreneurs, both individually and collectively, are providing everyday acts of leadership, from working with clients, communities and consumers, to creating new market opportunities and income streams. This October we celebrate all forms of leadership across the diverse Indigenous business sector in Australia, specifically, we will be promoting Indigenous entrepreneurs that engage with community; Indigenous entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence in their industry; and Indigenous entrepreneurs who are also role models and ambassadors for their communities.” Dr Michelle Evans, Program Director, Murra Indigenous Business Masterclass Program
Indigenous Business Month is an initiative of the MURRA Indigenous Master Class Program (MURRA) alumni, to promote the variety and depth of Indigenous businesses nationally and to provide an Indigenous business voice to the national conversation. The Indigenous Business Month initiative is driven by MURRA alumni who see business as a way of providing positive role models for young Indigenous Australians.
