It’s that time of year again when the Dragon’s from TV’s Dragon’s Den are on the lookout for new businesses, products & entrepreneurs who may be looking for funding.
There is no official closing date for applications, however, from mid-April, the BBC stop looking through applications and put any that come forward after that into the next series.
Business Mine (now Enterprise Support)) Alumni Allison Whitmarsh of ProperMaid secured a £50,000 investment from Deborah Meadon when she appeared on the show in 2012. If Allison can do it, why can’t you?
Dragons’ Den is a challenging place to pitch, but it’s also a genuine business opportunity to secure investment. In 2014, 20 entrepreneurs accepted offers of investment in the Den worth a combined £1,425,000, with plenty more achieving success after taking on board the Dragons’ advice.
