Pacem is delighted to support a new initiative entitled ‘Spare Room to Stellar‘, alongside Belfast City Council and Danske Bank. Spare room to stellar is designed to inspire and equip Belfast entrepreneurs to start and grow a business. It does this by firstly sharing the stories and lessons of 3 businesses that started in a spare room in Belfast and have gone on to compete, and win, on a global scale.

The first film released in the series is that of Gregory Bradley and BLK BOX.

Gregory Bradley of BLK BOX says: “I started selling dumbbells out of my garage and have ended up designing, manufacturing and installing state of the art gym facilities globally – and if sharing my story inspires others to give their business idea a shot, I’ll be delighted. Taking a small idea and growing it is what Spare Room to Stellar resource is all about. There’s fantastic support available for people starting out on their own in business – and we want to see more people getting out there and giving it a shot.”

Watch the highs, lows, habits and how-tos of starting/growing a business from humble beginnings. Sit back, enjoy and then act on your idea or early venture by booking a signposting consultation over at
