How did FAC help CPCC?

First Australians Capital provided pre-approval for a new equipment finance facility for CPCC which was funded through a Westpac funding partnership. FAC worked alongside CPCC to provide support services and mentorship. We re-worked cash-flow processes and large-scale budgets and extended marketing and re-branding support.

A model of impact

Supply Nation’s Sleeping Giant Report examines the social return on investment (SROI) of Indigenous businesses, showing on average, every $1 spent with an Indigenous business returns $4.41 in social impact through employment, community support and capability building (amongst a range of impact measured). CPCC is driven by the needs they see in the community to build opportunity and skill. 

“As a First Nations business we believe in the dynamic creativity and depth of our people’s skills – the mentoring and support programs through FAC give us both a sense of confidence and ability to invest in our people and their unique creative and communication skills”, Sara Stuart comments.

The eco-system for the future

Businesses like CPCC demonstrate the compounding potential and value of an inclusive economic eco-system; One that recycles and shares knowledge and equal opportunities for all. 

“As a First Nation Australian business we believe in self-determination and that our grounded and connected energy allows for culture, knowledge sharing, community consultation and inclusion. FAC’s mentoring and support programs is a good fit for us, and we value their holistic approach to business and business relations”.
