Our University curriculum far too often portrays enterprise and entrepreneurship as the product of the modem economy. Indeed quantitative researchers and educators often fail to investigate small business or consider historical case studies of Indigenous entrepreneurship. This has led to a very limited focus by business educators on big business and Silicon Valley-type success. This paper challenges this limited focus by demonstrating that continuous Aboriginal enterprise in southeast Australia - with trade networks extending across nearly one third of the continent - has been confirmed at 8,000 years.
