DKA has begun the rollout of the DKAccelerator, a program that supports the development of First Nations enterprises across Central Australia.
The DKAccelerator is a program designed to support First Nations entrepreneurs to accelerate the growth of their business through intensive mentorship, project-based learning, and digital technology innovation. The program responds to the socio-cultural barriers of running a business in Central Australia by providing responsive and contextual support, and working alongside entrepreneurs and their support network.
The DKAccelerator program’s preliminary objective was to conduct research on Aboriginal businesses and business support services across the region, and understand how gaps in business development support can be filled. The design and delivery is based on findings from the regional analysis, and will focus on helping entrepreneurs build momentum and confidence in their business through a 24-week program with responsive, hands-on support.
DKA is currently accepting applications from Indigenous entrepreneurs interested in being part of the program.
The program is supported by the Northern Territory Government.
