“We want kids to see that their future lies not just in arts and sport. Business also requires creativity and Provides a path to community growth and individual aspirations.”
Indigenous Business Month is an initiative driven by the alumni of Melbourne Business School’s MURRA Indigenous Business Master Class Program, who see business as a vehicle towards self-determination, a way of providing positive role models for Indigenous Australians and improving quality of life in Indigenous communities. Since its establishment in 2015, Indigenous Business Month is an annual celebration that occurs every October and 2021 marks it’s 7th year.
In the midst of the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic, there were thirty five Indigenous Business Month events registered in 2020. These events not only showcased the talent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander entrepreneurs but ignited conversations about Indigenous business development and innovation.
