Indigenous success in investment and trade supported by IGNITE


The Indigenous Network for Investment, Trade and Export (IGNITE) is an Indigenous-led intermediary designed to expedite private investment into outstanding Indigenous enterprises, supporting Indigenous participation in international trade negotiations, and expanding Indigenous export opportunities.

At the same time, impact investing around the world is surging and represents significant opportunities for impact investors to achieve authentic engagement and shared outcomes partnering with Indigenous enterprises. In June 2020, the Global Impact Investing Network valued the sector at US$715 billion (A$1 trillion), up from US$500 billion the year before.

“It’s time for greater private investment in Australian Indigenous enterprises by building the pipeline for deal-flow with investment-ready Indigenous enterprises. Ignite has the right team of Indigenous executives on board to help this important economic initiative achieve greater business and commercial outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander led businesses,” said Mr Godwell – Executive Officer, ignite

“Directly linked to this will be redefined measures of Indigenous success, including greater private sector investment flows into Indigenous businesses, faster growth in Indigenous exports, increased market share and market capitalisation of Indigenous companies. This is where ignite will play a crucial role.”
