First Innovators and Indigenous Startups Breakfast

We're excited to present a unique, interactive discussion platform to champion the strength, resilience, and potential of First Nations Peoples in the wider innovation ecosystem. 
Adopting the tradition of a yarning circle, let’s do this one big yarn to foster collaboration, generate solutions, and empower First Nations economic participation. 

Let’s talk about: 

- our current successes of First Nations Peoples in business. 
- the benefits of a joint venture relationship with First Nations businesses. (Sustainable Industries, Sustainable Communities) 
- building and nurturing a supportive Australian business ecosystem for Indigenous leaders. 
- collaborative efforts and strategies for a brighter, inclusive future. 

Join Stephen Rutter, Founder of The Scale Institute and current Indigenous Entrepreneur in Residence at Incubate and Travis De Vries, Director of Awesome Black in conversation with Megan Mallin, Ecosystems Manager at Tech Central for this yarn and afterwards to meet new friends and other like minded entrepreneurs and innovators in a safe space. We hope you’ll join us for what promises to be an informative and engaging session!
