IBA serves, partners and invests with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who want to own their future. We go further than provide money; we invest in people, places and ideas that can’t wait. We help make them real. We’re deeply invested in the financial success and economic independence of Indigenous Australians. It’s why we exist.
Established in 1990 following the proclamation of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) Act 1989, IBA was originally known as the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commercial Development Corporation (CDC). In 2001 the name was changed to Indigenous Business Australia and over the years has significantly expanded its scope, reach, products and services.
As we now enter our 30th year, this milestone is an opportunity to celebrate thousands of inspiring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, families, businesses and communities we have worked with over the past 30 years.
We hope you enjoy their stories.
IBA acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, to the Elders past, present, and emerging.
