Dragons' Den Dragons' Den

The BBC are currently taking applications for the fifth series of Dragons' Den.

The programme gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their innovative business ideas to 5 multi-millionaire investors who choose whether or not to invest in the idea presented.

Lancaster University supported previous Dragons' Den contestants Raw Studio who successfully pitched for a £75,000 investment in their snow-sport invention, the Snowbone.

As demonstrated by the investments in the last series, ideas, businesses and products that meet some or all of the following criteria stand a good chance of securing the Dragons' interest:

  • The Unique Selling Point: a product that serves a need like nothing else.
  • Scalability: something that can be up scaled to make real money.
  • Route to Market: the clear way the product can be sold and marketed.
  • Mutually Beneficial Arrangement: just what will the Dragons get out of it?
  • Exit Strategy: a plan of how the entrepreneur/Dragon will exit and make money.

For application details follow the link below to the Dragons' Den website.
