Our vision is to reduce property owners' risks by working with the best design team for each project from day one.
Pitch Your Concepts is an online marketplace and platform to find architects and interior designers for design-led property renovations and SME developments.
Who is it for?
Homeowners, roperty owners, SME developers, business owners with a physical presence (eg. retail, restaurants, offices) and estate agents.
Architects and interior designers (currently live). An architect is one of the first professionals hired for any renovation or development projects, so we developed Pitch Your Concepts with this in mind to save you 100 emails and calls, assist you in writing your project brief and hopefully reduce risks by working with a compatible team from day one.
A Brief History of Pitch Your Concepts
Founders and sisters Yvonne and Von Chua, a chartered architect and engineer working in the architecture, engineering and construction industry were often asked by friends, families and acquaintances to pitch in ideas or recommend a professional for their renovation projects.
In December 2015, the company was registered, the first tiny step to realising our vision to reduce property owners' risks by working with the best design professionals for each project from day one. Research on the market, the digitisation of the property industry and formulate a strategy to develop the idea into a business whilst maintaining 9 to 5 jobs to bootstrap the business.
Yvonne began realising the MVP.
