Ipswich Indigenous Entrepreneurs Coming Together

On Monday, 30 October 2017 Tagai Management Consultants co-hosted with Ngiyani Pty Ltd the Ipswich Black Business Coffee Networking & Meet-up at Seeds Coffee (owned by Torres Strait Islander entrepreneur, Tamara Haworth).

The event was one of many nationwide events throughout October celebrating Indigenous Business Month.

17 aspiring and inspiring entrepreneurs, a local government Councillor and IBA attended the coffee event with a spirit of respect for country, collaboration and motivation to not just strengthen their business journey but, to ensure the community benefits.

Old connections were energised, new connections were started and all participants agreed that the event which built upon the coffee events hosted by the Southeast Queensland Indigenous Chamber of Commerce is a catalyst for Indigenous entrepreneurs in the Ipswich region to create a business ecosystem that encourages, learning, collaboration, strong relationships and community.

The next event is scheduled for Monday, 27 November 2017 at The Secret Garden, 241 Brisbane Street, Ipswich Qld and on the  focused agenda will be some professional development, government insights and Tagai Management Consultants will deliver a procurement session.
