The Indigenous Enterprise Partnership (IEP) "has been operating in Cape York in its current form since 2001 and has recently established an office in the Goulburn/Murray district of Victoria.

"Its development was driven by a group of individuals who were inspired by Noel Pearson's Our Right To Take Responsibility (1999) which articulated the existence of 'passive welfare' in Indigenous communities and the need to create a 'real economy'." [1]
