Abstract

The motivation for this research was the substantial and entrenched socio-economic disadvantage of Indigenous peoples in Australia and the pressing need to explore the potential of Indigenous entrepreneurship to significantly address this disadvantage and make a sustained difference in the lives of Indigenous peoples in Australia. The development of successful businesses by Indigenous Australians is an important part of the strategy for improving the quality of life for many Indigenous communities and Indigenous Australians. Indigenous businesses provide jobs for the Indigenous community, provide important pathways to Indigenous self-determination and provide new possibilities for Indigenous youth and Indigenous communities in urban, regional and rural Australia.
