Noomool is the first collaboration between the ISX and Pozible - the Melbourne based crowdfunding group. Please support this project. We seek funding for no ordinary documentary. It is a fight to build awareness about the importance of the incredible pristine environment of the King Sound and a culture in danger of being lost. By investing in this project you are investing in the preservation of this incredible natural environment and the spirit of the Mayala people.

Gary Dhurrkay Academy Recently Listed on the ISX Trading Floor
The ISX trading floor is a moving feast. Aboriginal social, cultural and for-profit enterprises searching for investment, support and/or management expertise post their listings and retract them as their needs are met. Rather than remaining hidden or lost in a "philanthropic, government or business investment filing cabinet" the trading floor is a here and now network of Aboriginal aspirations, ideas and practical needs seeking fulfilment.

More Information on the Trading Floor

Often an indirect result of listing on the trading floor is that Aboriginal enterprises who had not previously known of each others existence, themselves start to network to achieve mutally beneficial results.

The ISX website and trading floor regularly attains over 200,000 hits each month. Since 2000 there have been over 5,000 projects and enterprises listed on the ISX trading floor. 90 per cent of these projects and businesses have received free listings.

At the very least listing on the ISX provides Aboriginal businesses with a highly visible web presence and exposes them to the eyes of many interested parties. Not everyone gets what they want, but most everyone gets what they need from an ISX listing.

Poorly thought out listings are unlikely to attract financial support. But even first time businesses regularly receive a helping hand by listing on the ISX trading floor. The discipline of listening to investors demands and hearing about their requirements is often a major learning experience. Often businesses do not or cannot take up offers of support because they want to remain completely independent. In other cases new partnerships and alliances have been formed.

In most cases the process of developing clear guidelines for investment and support takes years rather than weeks. The trading floor is there for this long term duration, listings are adapted and shaped along with the development of the business. There is no fee to post your own listing. However if you seek support in posting or changing a listing we charge a minimum of $100.

The ISX is able to keep costs very low because of volunteers and sponsors of our website. After experimenting with videolink and community trading floors it was recognised that the while the results were outstanding a lower cost model for supporting Aboriginal businesses was needed. This is how our web based strategy evolved.

The entire ISX operation is basically a not for profit organisation which seeks to cover the expenses of volunteers who do all the behind the scenes work at the ISX. The ISX prides itself on its low overheads as well as ensuring that there is a direct relationship between investors and supporters and Aboriginal businesses. There are no middle men or team of experts who skim off payments at any part of the process. Our goal is to be a direct communication link that gets the word to the national and international social and for profit investment community about the outstanding Aboriginal people and businesses that abound in Australia .

The BAMA ISX is not a financial market and does not sell or trade financial products of any kind.
