Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Innovation

Creating pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses and innovators to turn their ideas into reality.

The Advance Queensland Deadly Innovation Strategy seeks to deliver jobs and economic wealth for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

It creates pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses and innovators to turn their ideas into reality, so they can build wealth and create jobs.

It empowers communities to activate their traditional values of participation and innovation, through embracing positions of current strength in culture, land, water and business for the benefit of all.

The Queensland Government will help our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander business leaders and innovators access the experts, inspiration and opportunities to generate new ideas and grow their sector.

We will do this by harnessing relationships, strengthening respect and creating opportunity.

  • Aim 2: Government will share, by broadening access to existing opportunities.
  • Aim 3: Government will activate, by securing funding and backing feasible deals.

Acknowledgment of Country

We pay our respects to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors of the land and sea, their spirits and their legacy.
