Darrell Olsen, Executive Producer of Dragons’ Den has been sharing his experience and practical insight into business pitching at Edinburgh campus today.
During a special lecture, open to our entrepreneurial MBA class, students had a unique opportunity to hear first-hand what works in the den and why some entrepreneurs are destined to walk away empty-handed.
Dragons’ Den is a very successful reality TV show, featuring entrepreneurs pitching their business ideas in order to secure investment finance from a panel of venture capitalists. Budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to convince five multimillionaires to invest their own cash to kick-start the businesses.
Earlier this year, the show returned to BBC Two for the fifteenth series with two brand new investors, Tej Lalvani and Jenny Campbell, joining the famous line-up, including Deborah Meaden, Peter Jones and Touker Suleyman.
