The Ngamai Aboriginal Entrepreneurs Meet Ups

Posted 1 Jul 19

The Ngamai Aboriginal Entrepreneurs Meet Ups have been going strong for a year now, thanks to the ongoing support of RMIT University and LaunchVic.

We have talked about everything from food, to ethical fashion and technology. We have hosted special nights for families with babies, young entrepreneurs and women in business. We have been joined by Aboriginal entrepreneurs from around Australia and hosted soft launches for new businesses like Pawa catering and events like BlakFeeds

Our community is built, and now we are opening it up to non-Indigenous collaborators. The next five Ngamai meet ups are designed to build new connections and grow our network. Get out your diary. There is no RSVP necessary, just come along – community style.

There is always an abundance of flowers, food, drinks and good vibes.
