CGU Insurance is calling on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander business owners to enter a scheme to win one of five $5000 grants.

This year’s Kayku Kumpa awards follows the success of last year’s competition, the insurer says. The grants provide First Nations business owners with support for personal and professional development.

“It’s been a tough year for many small businesses due to the pandemic, so we’re looking forward to launching the CGU Kayku Kumpa Award again to support the growth and skills development of First Nations small business owners,” CGU EM Phil Lockyer said.

“We received strong applications during last year’s awards program from a range of innovative small businesses, which makes us excited to see what this year’s ingenious ideas from First Nations businesses will bring.”

The Kayku Kumpa awards takes its name from the local language of the Gringai people of the Wonnarua nation of the Hunter Valley in NSW. Kayku Kumpa means “strong yesterday, stronger tomorrow”.
