Designed to build relationships between Aboriginal entrepreneurs and private investors, the Ngamai Investors Dinner hosted founders from tech, fashion, food and retail industries along with Venture Capitalists, Angel and Impact Investors for a private pop-up dining experience created by Pawa Catering and Events. For many investors, it was their first time in an Aboriginal-led space and for many founders, it was their first time meeting private investors. It was also Pawa’s first time creating a three-course pop-up dining event. The food was exceptional, conversation flowed, connections were made, and one tech founder met their lead investor. This founder has since closed a million-dollar seed round. Kalinya continues to build relationships between the investment and Aboriginal entrepreneurial communities.
