Are you up to ‘The Challenge’ of becoming a Dragon in the Den?

We’ve all felt the pressure of Dragon’s Den from the comfort of our homes, but have you ever thought that might you have what it takes to be the next Dragon’s Den panelist? Well, this might just be your chance…

In partnership with the National Citizens Service, The Challenge are looking for 4 keen and enthusiastic business owners who feel they have what it takes to become Dragons and join their inspirational panel of local business and community leaders for their upcoming ‘Dragons Den’ style pitch events for 15-17 year-olds.

Five teams of 12 young people each have 10 minutes to pitch their social action campaign, with the aim of securing the £50 funding needed to run their operations.

The campaign will be directly linked to a local charity, with the aim of raising awareness for that organization, and highlighting the issues that they address.

The Challenge provides the funding while the panel decides on which teams should be awarded the funding for their project and pitch.

Refreshments and snacks will be provided to the Dragons for their time.

Dates and Dragon Spaces Available

Wednesday 27th of July 1 Dragon slot available
Sunday 31st July 1 Dragon slot available
Thursday 18th of August 2 Dragon slot available

If you feel you have what it takes and would like to take this opportunity to give back to young, promising entrepreneurs, please contact Olivia Broomfield via email at olivia.broomfield@the-challenge.org to register your interest on the panel.
