The Indigenous Business Month runs annually from the 1st to the 31st October to celebrate and acknowledge Indigenous Business across Australia. This event was started by the alumni of MURRA Indigenous Business Program at The University of Melbourne, who had a desire to not only to celebrate Indigenous businesses and entrepreneurs, but also acknowledge their contributions to community and provide positive role models for young Indigenous Australians.
This event was first celebrated 5 years ago and has grown quickly, with events now being held across the country.

This Indigenous Business Month we would like to acknowledge our past Indigenous Governance Awards (IGA) winners. These Indigenous led businesses, projects and initiatives received an award for their excellence in governance. Next year we will be hosting the IGAs again, in partnership with AIGI. Applications will be opening soon.
