Bank of useful ideas

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.

We’re launching the initiative in Burnie in September. To make sure we get it right, we need you to get involved.

Stage One: Opportunities workshop

It starts with a two-day, hands-on workshop to work out what the issues and opportunities are in the Burnie region. We’re taking registrations now, so sign up below if you’d like to be part of the action.

Stage Two: Collecting ideas

Once the opportunities are identified, 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 $60,000 cash, a unique loan arrangement, mentoring, networking and more.

Opportunities Workshop: September 20 - 21

This is your chance to be part of something unexpected. Register your interest now.

Friday, 20 September, 1.30pm (2pm start) - 6.00pm
Saturday, 21 September, 9.00am - 1.00pm
The Point, Burnie

We believe that the best ideas are formed when thinking about the needs of a community. We don't presume to have the answers, that's where you can help to identify the biggest opportunities for the Burnie community.

It’s important that you can attend both sessions, on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Come ready to get involved – we want everyone to have their say.

If this sounds like something for you, please register below!
Unfortunately, there aren't enough spots for everyone, so please register your interest as soon as possible.
