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.

If you’ve been paying close attention, you may have noticed that we’ve been hinting at a new Linn Park project coming soon – and we’re finally ready to share it with you! A planning process to redesign and reactivate Linn Park kicked off recently when public and private organizational partners met on site with the nationally acclaimed park designers OJB Landscape Architecture (OJB) to begin an eight-month master plan development process to improve Linn Park.
