2020 has certainly started with its fair share of problems. We had the worst bush fire season on record and now COVID-19. But Indigenous Australians are resilient – proven by over 60,000 years of existence.
Over the past 30 years, it has been a privilege for IBA to walk alongside tens of thousands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as they have achieved their dreams of buying a home, starting and growing a business and investing in their future.
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.
