New program to support Indigenous entrepreneurs
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander innovators and entrepreneurs in Queensland looking to grow their business will soon have access to further support through the Indigenous Innovation and Entrepreneurs Program (IIEP).
Building on the success of the previous Creating Tracks program, the IIEP will support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander entrepreneurs with a pathway for starting out their business in Queensland.
Open to Indigenous businesses, innovators or entrepreneurs across all industries, the program will have an increased focus on the participation of Indigenous tourism operators.
Following initial workshops, eligible participants will have access to coaching and mentoring sessions, and will be invited to participate in pitch events with councils, government agencies and industry bodies.
The jointly-funded initiative between Queensland Government and TAFE Queensland will be available from early 2020.
