Australia is home to over 2.1 million businesses, of which between 12,000 and 16,000 (0.5% to 0.7%) are Indigenous owned. A further 73,250 Indigenous Aussies are set to join the workforce by 2026 and 2,200 of those are expected to start their own businesses. Australia is facing a shortage of Indigenous companies able to fulfil even a small section of work in the information technology (IT) market. The last census in 2021 revealed that there were only 1,402 Indigenous ICT workers in Australia. In recent years, there’s been a major push to grow the country’s First Nations business sector, and the results are promising.
