World’s first Indigenous Accelerator – now known as a world leader in First Nations Entrepreneurship


What does Barayamal actually do?

Despite the promising (re)growth of First Nations Entrepreneurship in Australia, after being locked out of Australia’s economy for almost 200 years, there’s a long way to go. In 2016, we launched the world’s first Indigenous Accelerator program out of frustration with the status quo and quickly realised that just running an accelerator program wouldn’t be enough so our “Impact Strategy” through First Nations Entrepreneurship (not Western Entrepreneurship) focuses on the below channels for change.

Capacity Building

We strengthen First Nations Entrepreneurship by supporting entrepreneurs/businesses through coaching, strategic advice, training, mind shifts (Indigenous vs Western Entrepreneurships), or services that further increase First Nations Entrepreneurship which we believe will empower people and deliver a greater impact in our community.

Market Transformations

We build products or services that fulfil an unmet need that will have a positive impact on the community. We aim to solve problems through the power and wisdom of First Nations Entrepreneurship. We might also mess with the status quo or “Indigenous Wealth Managers” in the process by creating new tools & strategies to shift markets that benefit the community, instead of individuals…

Policy Change

We aim to influence policy, regulations, and rules in relation to First Nations Entrepreneurship to benefit the community instead of individuals (Indigenous vs Western Entrepreneurship). We are working to change the system that wants us to conform to Western business practices, and nothing less!

Culture and Behavior Change

We help inform, educate and inspire others to be a part of the solution (First Nations Entrepreneurship), instead of the problem.
