The Voom Tour 2017


We brought the #VOOM to London!

Our #VOOM bus rolled into The Business Show London on 17-18 May, on its game-changing, business-boosting, coffee-fuelled tour around the UK. 

The event also marked the start of our eagerly anticipated Voom Pitch competition, with six talented movers and shakers going head-to-head to pitch to our panel of experts. 

In the end Saint Aymes chocolates offered the day's sweetest pitch, walking off with £5000, a brunch date with Richard Branson – and a few hundred new fans.
