Aspiring Indigenous Entrepreneurs set to take over The Edge
By Administrator | 22 August 2016
Proudly hosted by The Edge, State Library - Australia's First Indigenous Startup Weekend is a not-for-profit event Powered by Google, which sets out to tackle the development of more Indigenous owned and operated business by increased promotion of Indigenous Entrepreneurship.
The event is a social impact initiative organised by two Kamilarioi men, Troy Casey and Dean Foley, who are extremely passionate about creating a sustainable economy and empowering Indigenous communities.
Over the course of the weekend, participants and aspiring Indigenous entrepreneurs will be aided by coaches and mentors to acquire the skills and experience they need to launch a startup business in a condensed and restrictive 54-hour time frame.
It’s all about learning the skills and gaining experience in entrepreneurship by taking part in pitching, business model creation, coding, designing and market validation. At the end of the weekend, each team will pitch their idea to a panel of success business people for the chance to win prizes.
All ideas, applications and platforms are welcome.
