Ngamai Aboriginal Entrepreneurs Meet Ups

Posted 7 May 21

The Ngamai Aboriginal Entrepreneurs Meet Ups brought together founders, creatives, and investors for 15 themed events. Kicking off in 2018 with an intimate gathering, within a year Ngamai was attracting 100+ attendees for rooftop parties, fashion shows and a curated marketplace. Over 80% of the project budget was spent with Aboriginal businesses and social enterprises, with everything from food and drinks to merchandise, flowers, music, speakers and performances coming from within the Aboriginal business community. It was a living incubator. Ngamai was a place to trie new things and experiment with ideas. From weaving workshops to virtual reality, Ngamai hosted poets, venture capitalists and artists. The Ngamai Aboriginal Entrepreneurs Meet Ups project was a partnership between Kalinya and RMIT University, powered by LaunchVic.
