Strong knowledge, stronger business for Aboriginal entrepreneurs. Start Strong is an education and mentoring program designed to support Aboriginal entrepreneurs to establish strong foundations and develop business acumen as they chart their course to business ownership. Whether an Aboriginal entrepreneur’s business idea is for-profit, profit-for-purpose or a social enterprise, Start Strong will help them to scope and scale their (ad)venture.
It will identify and guide entrepreneurs with innovative and scalable ideas from vision through to venture using workshops, webinars, peer-to-peer learning, cultural support, networking and mentoring. This three tiered program is co-designed by an Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal delivery team able to ensure participants experiences and learning prepares them to navigate the business world from a position of cultural strength.
The program is tiered, beginning with community conversations and a series of awareness raising, ideation and talent seeking stand-alone workshops for Aboriginal entrepreneurs at any stage of their business journey. These are followed by the six-month Educate to Accelerate program for entrepreneurs looking to establish strong foundations and develop business acumen to launch or supercharge their business. The final tier provides one to one mentoring services.
This program is a collaboration with The Cultural Consultancy Group.
