The fourth installment of our startup capital competition The Big Pitch presented by PNC is right around the corner (early bird tickets are now available). Today, we highlight a finalist from the very first event: Lemar Storey and his massage therapy business, Life Touch Massage.
Although not selected as a financial winner in 2014, Lemar still received valuable assistance in finance, marketing, design, legal topics and more during the all-day Big Pitch Bootcamp session. REV staff across multiple departments continued to work with Lemar as he pursued a new brick and mortar home for Life Touch Massage. This summer, he opened the doors to his space in the popular Parkside District, two blocks away from Railroad Park and in the shadows of Regions Field.

After opening Chocolatà Artisanal Chocolatier in 2017, Kathy D’Agostino has enjoyed watching the once quiet streets of downtown Birmingham come back to life. REV sat down with her to learn more about how she landed here, where she thinks the city is heading, and why Chocolata believes in Birmingham.
