First Nations Founders Meetup

For the next First Nations Founders Meetup, Founder of Barayamal and IDX Entrepreneurship 2017 Winner Dean Foleywill have a yarn with leading Indigenous Supply Chain Procurement Specialist Murray Saylor, Managing Director of Tagai Management Consultants.

Murray is of Torres Strait Islander descent whose family originates from Darnley Island (Erub) located in the Eastern cluster of the Torres Strait. Murray realised at a young age he wanted to challenge negative stereotypes about Indigenous Australians and create his own destiny. The next phase of Murray’s journey is to share knowledge with others, and facilitate empowering partnerships with people, communities and businesses creating their own destiny...

First Nations Founders Meetup connects, educates, and supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Founders, Innovators and Leaders by running a monthly meetup event so you can network and hear inspiring stories, learn valuable insights into strategies and tactics that work, and what mistakes to avoid from people with real-world experience.

Barayamal eMentoring Platform Launch

  • QUT Foundry, Gardens Point (D-214) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

eMentoring is an online (and in person) mentoring platform supporting Indigenous entrepreneurs and professionals by connecting them with industry experts to receive mentoring and support to overcome career problems or challenges.

Why?
According to the latest government employment study, the Indigenous unemployment rate is currently 21%, an increase of 4.3 percentage points since 2008, and is 4 times the current non-Indigenous unemployment rate of 5%.

By mentoring and support Indigenous entrepreneurs and professionals to achieve their career goals, we could help re-shape these statistics and our communities.

eMentoring is an initiative of Barayamal, Australia's Indigenous Business Accelerator - now know as a world leader in Indigenous Entrepreneurship.
