BizAbility – Think Ability, Then Design Your Business


BizAbility assists people with a disability explore entrepreneurship as a pathway to achieving self-employment using human centred design (HCD) methodology. Participants identify an idea for self-employment matched to their abilities and circumstances, test assumptions and create an action plan to achieve self-employment using the 5 core modules of Design Thinking: Empathise, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test.

Throughout the program, participants will have access to a mentor for individual support and assistance. They also become part of a community where they can share their experience with others and hear from entrepreneurs with lived disability experience.

We see successful participants leave the program with a stronger purpose, awareness of opportunities and increased motivation to achieve self-employment.

Outcomes include:

  • Increased understanding of self-employment and skills needed
  • Improved connection to others with similar needs and aspirations
  • Raised confidence to start their self-employment journey

Available to NDIS Participants:

  • 17 to 65 years old
  • Want to explore self-employment
  • Approx. 12 weeks (3 hours per week) exploring & learning
  • Approx. 40 weeks (3 hours per week) business mentoring
