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.
