Watching the latest series of Dragons Den, you have to wonder whether it’s past its ‘sell by’ date. In last Sunday’s episode nobody invested anything, and the way one or two of the Dragon’s are behaving, gives cause to wonder whether they actually have any money at all! Add in the fact that the excellent Theo Paphitis has been replaced by Piers Linney, a man who gives the impression that he’s not even confident of his own shoe size (let alone the potential of a business) and it has all the hallmarks of a show on its last legs.
I have a friend who’s quite a long way down the line of developing a rival show for both UK and US TV, but if you have an idea or business which needs funding in the meantime, why not bring it to us. We have personal funds to invest as well as access to dozens of ‘angel’ investors on the lookout for the right opportunity. The worst we can say is no!
