The BBC is calling for entries for their latest variant on the Dragon’s Den theme…
Harnessing the accessibility and reach of the internet, the ‘Online Dragon’ offers entrepreneurs from across the country the chance to make their business dreams come true.
Online Dragon is an opportunity for entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas to two new ‘Dragons’ chosen for their business expertise, and also provides a platform for wider debate and discussion around these ideas before they appear in the online ‘Den.’
The investment will be limited to less than £50,000. We are interested in great ideas, which may range from innovative blue-sky thinking to investment-ready products. Please be aware that all applications must include a video pitch.
We’re now working on the new series and searching for business ideas, inventions or products with serious business potential that are investment ready and looking for funding. I would be extremely grateful if you would pass on the attached information to clients who may be interested in applying to pitch for investment from the Dragons.
Online Dragons is a challenging place to pitch but it’s also a genuine business opportunity to secure investment.
