INCO First Australians Digitisation Fund
Building tech solutions with
First Nations Australians.
With support from
The INCO First Australians Digitisation Fund aims to empower nonprofits working toward closing the gap for First Nations Australians.
With a focus on health, employment, education and social justice, we're looking for organisations and initiatives which use technology to promote greater equity and inclusion; to reach and impact communities in regional and rural areas across Australia.
At INCO, we believe impactful solutions often come from those closest to the problem.
These are the actionable, on-the-ground innovations which accelerate change. By supporting emerging and existing nonprofits, we hope to support solutions which continue to uplift First Nations Australians and their communities.
As part of the INCO First Australians Digitisation Fund, selected organisations will be given access to capacity building programs, funding opportunities, tech skills and mentoring to design and implement tech-based projects that contribute towards closing the gap.
Your solution doesn't need to be fully developed, but you will need to have a minimum viable product, so we can better understand how your solution will work toward impacting your intended audience.
Is my organisation ELIGIBLE?
We are looking for nonprofits whose ideas can be scaled to create the impact First Nations Australians' communities need today, for tomorrow.
To take part,
your solution will
be assessed by its:
1. Relevance to addressing health, education, employment, social justice or any other component of Closing the Gap
How does it work ?
From April 2022, selected nonprofits will receive capacity building support from INCO to scale their organisations' impact.
Ideas are selected
Organisations whose ideas best meet the criteria will be presented to our panel of experts for review.
Organisations are selected.
Successful applicants will be contacted in March.
All non-profit organisations who would like to participate are invited to complete our Application Form by Tuesday 22 February 2022.
