Indigenous-led innovation hub
Gandaywarra is an Indigenous-led innovation hub driven by the aspiration to embed traditional Indigenous technology, knowledge and practice into the already existing innovation ecosystem, supporting the fourth industrial revolution and aiming to decolonise conventional business and innovation practices. It will create a culturally safe environment, providing access to collaborative and strategic partnerships, events, resources and mentorship for Indigenous and non-Indigenous innovators. Gandaywarra will act as a vehicle to empower Indigenous Australians to overcome historic marginalisation and to become economically self-determined.
Gandaywarra will develop technologies, methodologies and capabilities to grow Indigenous entrepreneurship, country-based enterprises, emerging markets and innovative ESG models. Indigenous values of Country, Culture, Community and Prosperity will be embedded into all activities that stem from the hub. With additional funding and support, Gandaywarra can break the systemic marginalisation brought about by racism and poor policy, and enable life-changing impact.
