Working Together for Aboriginal Business Success
Morrgul is a Broome-based organisation offering business development and ongoing business support to Aboriginal people. Morrgul services are provided at no cost to community members with the ability and motivation to start their own business.
We strive to maintain an open and honest relationship with our clients throughout their journey into business. With our combined experience and industry partners in the Kimberley we are focused on making it easier for Aboriginal people to fulfil their goals of running their own business.
Morrgul, which means ‘working together’, launched in September 2013 to provide business development support to Aboriginal people of the Kimberley.
We help potential business owners start a business or improve an existing business. We now have a growing client base and have helped numerous new and existing businesses in the region across a range of industries. Morrgul’s goal is to help clients fulfil their business aspirations and gain economic independence.
Morrgul draws on the expertise of business development specialists to support and guide clients through the business development process.
The organisation is funded through the generous support of Woodside Energy Ltd as part of the Browse LNG Precinct Agreement with the Goolarabooloo and Jabbir Jabbir Traditional Owners – an initiative of Waardi Ltd. Waardi was established under the Browse LNG Precinct Project Agreement to work towards the social and economic benefit of Goolarabooloo Jabirr Jabirr people.
Morrgul is a joint venture of KPP and Waardi and formed for the benefit of all Aboriginal people of the Kimberley.
In August 2014, Morrgul became a registered Not for Profit with the Australian Charities and Not for Profits Commission. Morrgul is endorsed as a Public Benevolent Institution and has Deductable Gift Recipient status.

As a result Morrgul directors will ensure clear policies, procedures, systems and processes are implemented to ensure good decisions are made at both board and operational levels, finances are managed appropriately and our clients are provided with every opportunity to succeed.
Quality of Work
Morrgul will draw upon its knowledge of the region and use its experience to draw on business development expertise to suit the needs of its individual clients. It will ensure that clients are provided with timely and realistic assessments of opportunities, well written business plans that meet the needs of funding bodies, and personalised mentoring and support that meets individual needs.
