Ever heard of Pitchfest? No, not Pitch Perfect, Pitchfest! This is a collaborative event spear headed by Aston, Birmingham and Warwick Universities to deliver a day at the NEC brimming with opportunity for businesses and investors. Over 80 West Midlands companies attended, allowing businesses to compete, network and learn more about local industries. With such an event so close to home, of course thestudio were eager to enter.

Only 15 businesses got to the final and studio were delighted to be in the final 5 for the growth category. These finalists went on to present or better put “pitch” their plans for the future to a board full of potential investors and a room full of other businesses and potential new clients.

Our Director Emma Jennings commented: “Reaching the finals of Pitchfest is a great way to end another fantastic year of growth at thestudio. After recent expansion in Birmingham, Pitchfest provided an excellent opportunity to meet with several investors to talk through future plans for thestudio and its plans to grow into other major UK cities and any opportunity to showcase to new customers is always a winner!”

Well put Emma! Despite not qualifying, thestudio are still steaming ahead with plans for a bigger and brighter future. Imagine more studio venues dotted around the country, with our trade mark splashes of colour offering light and airy spaces with our simple mission statement of customer first, who could say no to that?!

Psst, if you’re wondering where else thestudio will plant its feet, we will be opening one in Leeds later this year! So keep those eyes peeled!
