Support Indigenous Entrepreneurship

Access to capital is the biggest challenge for Indigenous entrepreneurs and while venture capital firms continue to raise record amounts of cash for their billion-dollar funds, the median funding invested in Indigenous ventures remains $0.

More than $1.6 billion was raised by Aussie VCs in 2020 

We’re calling on VCs to stop talking about diversity and put their money where their mouth is and commit to investing 3% of their billion-dollar funds towards Indigenous ventures.

Indigenous people have been innovating for thousands of years from being the world’s first bakers to building one of the world's most comprehensive and oldest aquaculture systems which are older than Egypt's pyramids. 

And despite only making up 5% of the world’s population, Indigenous people protect 80% of the world's biodiversity - the results from supporting Indigenous Entrepreneurship goes without saying.

Your Support
Do you want to join us in making a difference? Donations raised from this charity fundraiser will go towards campaigning VCs to commit to the 3% Pledge to support Indigenous Entrepreneurship and create a better world for everyone, and every donation will help.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that will hopefully make a real difference in our community.

If you would like to get more involved in this campaign (e.g. use your awesome powers/skills for good), please reach out to us.

Why 3%?
Large institutions and Government are committing to a 3% employment target to help close the disparity gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians and provide opportunities that haven’t been available to First Nations people who were locked out of Australia’s economy for approximately 200 years with little to no intergenerational wealth. Indigenous people make up approximately 3% of Australia's population.

3% is a realistic and achievable goal to achieve, which will stimulate the Indigenous economy and create a better world for everyone through Indigenous Entrepreneurship.
