We are 100% Indigenous owned and are recognised as the peak and preferred certifying authority in the NT.

NTIBN is at the forefront of Aboriginal economic development, putting Aboriginal businesses in the driver’s seat of economic self-determination while unlocking the NT’s rich and grand Aboriginal estate.

Our Story

How we work together
The Hub is represented as the inner circle. The mid circle represents the national collaboration between us and the other Australian Hubs, FACCI and Supply Nation. The outer circle representing community and key stakeholders.

Our Hub and Spoke model story
The main Hub sits in the centre (located in Darwin) with outreach to the other five Territory regions – represented by five circles, Palmerston and Tiwi Islands, Big Rivers, Arnhem, Central Australia, and the Barkley. The biggest circle on the outer represents Central Australia as the anchor hub. The five lines reaching out to the regional hubs represent the five service streams. Everyone is supported through the network which is represented by three lines connecting each circle. The dots represent our members/clients.

Our Service Streams Story
Each song line represents a Hub service stream – Incubation and Start-up, Scale up, growth and sophistication, Employment services, Business Development and Women’s Business and Youth Enterprise. *Across all these streams is training and development

Tanyah Nasir, Founder – Tanyah Nasir Consulting Service

As an Aboriginal business we are specialists in Leadership Empowerment Training for our people. However, to build and grow we need other expertise such as grant writing. 

NTIBN understands our core business and through our working relationship they understand our specific needs.   

We were nominated to work with a company who specializes in grant writing.

Today, we are celebrating the fact that we applied, completed, and submitted.  We do not know the outcome at this stage, but the learning and preparation writing completed is a resource that we can use in future applications.  We could not have done this without the support of NTIBN. 

Being in business is challenging and often isolated; NTIBN is a place where I can go for information, advice and at times, encouragement, and support.
