Backed by Minderoo Foundation, Dream Summit saw over 100 of Australia’s leading Indigenous entrepreneurs and business mentors come together for 2-days of intensive skills building and celebration of Indigenous entrepreneurship.

The idea for Dream Summit was conceived over 12 months ago, as an initial meeting between Skills of the Modern Age and Minderoo’s Generation One team. With a mission to end Indigenous disparity, Generation One was exploring holding a hackathon-style event to support early-stage Indigenous-led businesses.

Dream Summit kicked off on the 12th September at the Sydney Startup Hub with a warm Welcome to Country from Uncle Allen Madden, respected Gadigal Elder and cultural representative for the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council.

Dream Summit culminated in what is likely to be Australia’s largest Indigenous-only focussed pitch event to date. 37 business were courageous enough to throw their hat in the ring and pitch to the mentors in the semi-final round, all vying for a share in $45,000 seed funding and $35,000 in business support prizes.
