VOOM Pitching Tips from 2015 Legends
With the public vote for #VOOM 2016 closing this week, we got to thinking about this time last year and how we at Fourex found the process. Was there anything we would have changed? What worked for us and the other fantastic brands we were lucky enough to be alongside as we got to Pitch to Rich. So we decided to run through what worked best for us and our other friends and below are some of the top tips we would recommend to the class of 2016, from those who have been in their shoes.

The ATM that turns leftover coins into cash
Pocketful of leftover pesos? Enough euros to fill a giant jar? Bewildered with your baht? For many travelers, coming home from a trip abroad with leftover money is a hassle they could do without. But entrepreneurs Jeff Paterson and Oliver du Toit decided to do something about that, launching their Fourex currency machines -- which unlike other exchanges convert both coins and cash -- around London last year.

Fourex in the news: SA's Carte Blanche
Fourex are thrilled to have been featured on Carte Blanche, an award winning South African investigative journalism programme on M-Net. Devi Sankaree Govender presented a short package, explaining how Jeff and Oliver came to create the Fourex machines whilst living in Abu Dhabi and why exactly they are needed, around R60 billion in the UK in spare change in the UK alone. The 28 year old programme is a SA favourite and has won over 165 awards, so it was fantastic to see the presenters hailing Fourex as ‘a smart idea’ that makes SA proud. It’s even better to hear what our fellow South Africans think on social media! See below for a handful of the comments.
