Entrepreneurs called to Dragons' Den

The TV programme Dragons’ Den is once again looking for entrepreneurs to pitch their idea or innovation to a panel of venture capitalists.

Last year, the
multi-millionaire investors offered their own money to 17 worthy entrepreneurs. One
of the most memorable was Kirsty Henshaw, who secured £65,000 from
Duncan Bannatyne and Peter Jones to expand her business. With their help, her
range of ‘Freedom’ healthy frozen desserts has hit 2,000 supermarkets nationwide
and sales figures have reached £360,000.

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 leave with nothing. The Dragons want to invest in the  best that British business has to
offer. Pitches can cover any type of business, but
the Dragons have to believe that it requires investment and will make money.
