In early 2017, the Bibbulmun Entrepreneurs Program (BEP) was launched in Perth, a 10-day program for Indigenous men and women to learn about enterprise creation and pathways.
Bibbulmun also secured significant in-kind sponsorship from major corporations for the Program,
Bunbury Resident Naydeene Edwards' winning business idea "Are You House Ready?" received seed funding from the Bibbulmun Fund and enabled her to offer a consultancy service which took people from homelessness to home ownership.
"BEP not only assisted me to position my plan in the proper context, it also provided me with direction I needed to bring it all together. It gave me the tools and advice to run a business and built connections with inspiring people, opening up more opportunities than I had ever expected."
