About us

“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.”

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. As program director Dr Michelle Evans notes: 

“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.”

As government and corporate Australia move towards a target of 3% of procurement from Indigenous businesses, programs such as MURRA and Indigenous Business Month play a significant role in building a thriving Indigenous Business sector, which will assist in reaching such targets.

Indigenous Business Month runs annually from the 1 – 31 October.
