At Barayamal, we believe that entrepreneurship and technology can change the world for the better.

Today we are now known as a world leader and our growing number of partners are on a mission to help close the (massive) disparity gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

We do this by building technology solutions, running business accelerator programs, free events, the Indigipreneur podcast, school-based education and by investing time and funding Indigenous startups, which are the high-growth economic and employment solution.

Help us create more jobs or build technology solutions that make a real difference in our communities by joining the movement now!

The meaning of Barayamal

The meaning of Barayamal Barayamal means ‘Black Swan’ in Gamilaraay language.

Before colonisation of Australia, Europeans only taught kids in school about the white swan until Dutch explorer Willem de Vlamingh discovered what First Nations peoples knew for millenniums, that there was also black feathered swans (black swans). This forced Europeans to reconsider and change their perceptions about what a “swan” actually means. In this instance, the black swan represents First Nations peoples who have not had their innovative ideas and businesses recognised because of current perceptions/”wisdom” – Barayamal will show the world that they do exist and help create a better world for everyone.
