A massive congratulations to our Founder for winning the IDX Entrepreneurship Award

Barayamal Founder, Dean Foley was recently announced as the winner of the Entrepreneurship Award at the 2017 Indigenous Digital Excellence (IDX) Awards.

"It's humbling to recognised by the community for the awesome work we are doing at Barayamal, which would not have been possible with my own efforts alone - without the support and mentorship from people who genuinely want to help and make a difference, none of this would have been possible. I cannot thank you enough."

How mentoring is accelerating Phillip's dream of success

Young entrepreneur Phillip Harris is turning his business idea into reality.

Phillip, an Eastern Arrernte, Goolarabooloo and Wiradjuri man, is originally from Darwin but moved to Brisbane in 2013 to attend Nudgee College on a scholarship.

“I have a lot of faith in my idea and Barayamal is helping make it a reality by keeping me grounded and working with me to get my idea into action.”

If Phillip’s idea is successful he’ll be leading an innovative tech company, creating jobs and keeping Australia at the forefront of the IT world. Just as importantly, he’ll be a role model to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander entrepreneurs with an idea that could change the world.

Dean is a First Nations person growing capabilities within First Nations communities through Barayamal - this is the essence of Self Determination” - Linda Ryle, President, Indigenous Lawyers Association of Queensland
