Indigenous Business Development

Keogh Bay recognises that nurturing new businesses is critical to generating positive employment outcomes and long-term economic advancement in the local community. With this in mind, Keogh Bay has successfully collaborated with government departments, mining companies, and Indigenous corporations to develop sustainable Indigenous businesses across Northern Australia in recent years.

WA Aboriginal Business Capability Building Program
Keogh Bay People will be delivering the Aboriginal Business Capability Building program on behalf of the Western Australian Government across five regions of Western Australia that have been combined into THREE Delivery Areas for the purposes of this project. These include:

  • Pilbara
  • Mid-West and Gascoyne, and
  • Goldfields-Esperance and Wheatbelt.

The 2 year program will focus on developing and delivering training programs to Aboriginal businesses across WA empowering them to tender for more government contracts. In particular, it is expected that information and training will be provided on four key topics: tendering skills; business development; internal governance; and contractual compliance requirements.
