First Nations entrepreneur Mr Foley said the the digital economy has the potential to be a gamechanger for First Nations people and communities.
“Barayamal programs are about inspiring and supporting the next generation of First Nations entrepreneurs," Mr Foley said. "It’s essential to keep supporting First Nations entrepreneurship development in this disruptive and fast-changing global economy because there will be new opportunities arising from these challenging times that can benefit our communities.
"Traditional or grassroots First Nations Entrepreneurship can change the world for the better,” he said.
