Born from the successful Indigenous Startup Weekend, Barayamal is a world class accelerator program that adopts a framework designed by Slingshot – a leader in corporate accelerator methodology.
Barayamal is also the only accelerator program in Australia for Indigenous people, run by Indigenous people, which provides essential education and training workshops, mentoring, early seed capital, working desk space and concludes with a demo day event. The Barayamal Accelerator will seek out the most innovative and disruptive Indigenous startups and entrepreneurs. Through the course of the 3-month intensive program, the Indigenous startups are supported by Indigenous entrepreneurs (mentors) and receive education from business experts, free co-working space and financial investment. Over three months the Startups will rapidly develop their businesses and showcase their success at the culminating demo pitch night.
