Do you dare to pitch your business idea to the dragons?

The Dragons are back and they’re ready to invest!

If you’re seeking investment for your business idea or invention, why not run the gauntlet in the Dragons’ Den? Yes, the Dragons are open for business once again, giving entrepreneurs from across the country the opportunity to pitch for investment and fulfil their business ambitions.

Dragons’ Den has created some incredible success stories over the last eight series, notably Levi Roots and his Reggae Reggae Sauce and Neil and Laura Westwood’s Magic Whiteboard…. and now it could be your turn!

Last year saw the multi-millionaire investors fund 17 worthy entrepreneurs – among the most memorable Kirsty Henshaw, who secured £65,000 to expand her business. Her ‘Freedom’ healthy frozen desserts are now stocked in 2000 supermarkets nationwide with sales figures of £360,000; she predicts she’ll make £1million in sales in her first year alone.

The rules are simple: entrepreneurs can ask for cash investment in return for equity in their business. However, they must get at least the amount they ask for or they will walk away with nothing. The Dragons want to invest in the very best that British business has to offer. They’re prepared to listen to a pitch for any type of business but they have to believe that it requires investment and will make money before they’ll back it with their own cash.
