Landgate ignites opportunities for WA-based Aboriginal entrepreneurs
Landgate is offering one scholarship for a WA based First Nations applicant with a location data business idea, research project or early stage business venture to attend Curtin Ignition.
The program is a five and a half day course run by Curtin University’s Business School to help aspiring entrepreneurs prepare their ideas for the commercial environment.
Location data is essential in many industries including, real estate, transport, agriculture, information technology and, building and construction.
Landgate Chief Executive Graeme Gammie said the aim is to assist First Nations entrepreneurs building new and useful products and services using location data.
“Landgate is proud to be providing this opportunity for emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses,” Graeme said.
“Aboriginal knowledge, experience and perspectives benefits our culture and the community. Location is a major part of everything we do at Landgate, which is why contribution from our State’s First Nations is so important.”
Applications for the Landgate scholarships close on Friday 10 July. For more information, please visit Curtin’s website.
