The NSW Indigenous Chamber of Commerce (NSWICC) is a non-Government, not for profit organisation with 12+ years expertise in Aboriginal procurement and economic development. The NSWICC’s core strategy is focused around creating a self-sustaining chamber model that ignites the entrepreneurial spirit of Aboriginal people, accelerates Aboriginal business and employment growth, and facilitates relationships and networks that enable sustained economic and social inclusion.
On Friday, the State’s Peak Body for Aboriginal Business, the NSWICC, hosted the NSW Governments Aboriginal Procurement Policy (APP) announcement. The Hon. Gladys Berejiklian, Premier for NSW formally announced the Policy with NSW Ministers, the Hon. Victor Dominello (Minister for Finance, Services and Property) and the Hon. Sarah Mitchell (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs), Members of the NSWICC Board, and 60 NSW-based Aboriginal Business Owners, at the site of the new Djiyagiyulang-Gal Enterprise Hub in Redfern.
Just as the first Indigenous Chamber of Commerce was born out of NSW, the NSWICC’s Djiyagiyulang-Gal Enterprise Hub, housed in the historical Black Theatre site within the heart of Redfern, is Australia’s first Aboriginal Owned & Controlled State Business Hub, Incubator and Accelerator. Building on existing business incubator and accelerator programs, the NSWICC will steadily increase offerings through Djiyagiyulang-Gal to become a ‘One Stop Shop’ for Aboriginal Entrepreneurs, Businesses, Enterprising Communities and Government and Industry Procurement.
