Barayamal Demo Day & AwardsNational platform to showcase Indigenous Entrepreneurship to the world!
Following the completion of the Barayamal Accelerator program, five Indigenous entrepreneurs will present their businesses at an investor pitch or “demo day” event on the 25 October at the Victorian Innovation Hub in Melbourne, the Barayamal Demo Day & Awards!
This national event will bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians to showcase some of the best Indigenous entrepreneurs in Australia, break negative stereotypes and show the world that Indigenous entrepreneurs exist (like black swans) and they can also build successful businesses.
Enjoy a night of free-flowing drinks and fusion of Indigenous foods (Pawa Catering & Events), quality entertainment including a live performance and listen to the inspirational stories of Indigenous entrepreneurs at the Barayamal Demo Day & Awards.
