The Voom Tour 2017

Newcastle

We brought the #VOOM to Newcastle!

Our #VOOM bus rolled into the north-east on its game-changing, business-boosting, coffee-fuelled tour.

And Tyneside came out in numbers to wow us with their talent, ideas, and inspiration.

A hotly contested Voom Pitch saw Max Haydon's Storage Shepherd see off tough competition. His business, a secure, cheap and local self-storage option, is one we're sure we'll be hearing plenty more about over the coming months.

Max walked off with £5,000, a brunch date with Richard Branson to look forward to, and quite a few extra fans!
