LaunchVic’s latest grant round – closing 24 May – aims to put Aboriginal entrepreneurs into the driver’s seat.

Giving Aboriginal Victorians the tools to become innovative entrepreneurs and business leaders by improving access and participation – that’s the game plan for the seventh round of grants worth of up to $500,000 which are now on offer through the Victorian Government’s startup body, LaunchVic.
