DG: Traditional Owner Businesses

Encourage the establishment of a range of businesses owned and managed by Traditional Owners, through support to increase capacity and business skills.

Why it is important?

The social, cultural and economic benefits of running your own business are immense. Encouraging local Traditional Owners to set up their own business, through targeted business training and education programs, will bring multiple benefits to participants, their families and the whole community.

Examples of Local Action

  • Offer support to local Traditional Owners, such as business training courses or access to finance, to enable people to start up and manage their own business.
