To turn an idea into a reality, it takes hustlers, builders, creatives


The Bank of Invention community has over 250 hustlers, builders and creatives dreaming big for the future of this city. Right now, we’re working hard to find a Bank of Invention space in Belfast City Centre where we can spin out some exciting projects and start-ups. Every great idea needs a kick-ass team to make it happen, and YOU could be a part of a team like that. Not sure if you fit the bill? Read on and you might change your mind...


You’re the driving force of whatever you put your hand to. You want to do the right thing, but you also want to do the thing right. You’re an entrepreneur, a wantrepreneur. You know how people work and you know how to get them working together.

Typical hustlers can be: Teachers, Marketers, Accountants, Lawyers, Civil Servants and Managers.


You solve problems. You observe, you listen and then you design and keep re-engineering the solutions. Your brain doesn’t stop, you’re one step ahead, identifying problems before they even occur, It’s a non stop cycle in your world; observe, create, test, evaluate.

Typical builders can be: Engineers, Joiners, Electricians, Plumbers, Product Designers.


You’re a daydreamer, you see possibilities everywhere and you work the hours that work for you. You live for new experiences, sensations and states of mind. You know what failing feels like, but you face it stubbornly until something extraordinary sticks.

Typical creatives can be: Artists, Musicians, Web and Graphic Designers, Writers.
