So many Tasmanians have a great idea that would improve their community but often, they don’t feel that they have the capacity or confidence to make it happen.


The Bank of useful ideas can change that.

At Bank of us, we want to be more than a bank – we’re committed to reinvesting our profits to benefit our customers and the wider community. So we’ve created something unexpected – the Bank of useful ideas.

Instead of providing grants or sponsorships, the Bank of useful ideas will support ideas that specifically answer your community’s needs.


Stage One: Rosny opportunities workshops 

Hands-on workshops will be held in Rosny to work out the 5 top issues and opportunities impacting the region. 

Stage Two: Collecting ideas

Once the opportunities have been revealed, it’s time to start gathering ideas – it might be a new business, a bold new initiative, or an event that fits the bill. Sign up to be notified once this stage starts.

Stage Three: Bringing the ideas to life

This is the really exciting bit. We’ll provide real and practical help to get the best ideas off the ground including financial support up to $50,000 cash, a unique loan arrangement, mentoring, networking and more.

Mentor group

We’d like to build a directory of skilled, passionate, knowledgeable people who would be willing to share their expertise to help get the best ideas off the ground.

The type of skills needed will depend on the ideas that are submitted.
