Series 6, Episode 9
Junior Dragons’ Den
This year sees the return of Junior Dragons on 18thMay and 1st June. The show provides an opportunity for the next generation of young business people in Ireland (12-18 years old) to show their fresh innovative ideas and attempt to secure the approval of the Dragons. The Dragons were just as thorough as they were for the adult series and were blown away by the incredibly high standard of the would-be entrepreneurs.
Eamonn Quinn will join the four existing Dragons, Ramona Nicholas, Barry O’Sullivan, Peter Casey and seasoned hand Gavin Duffy to put Ireland’s top entrepreneurs and inventors through their paces. In the last series we saw record investments of over 1 million, with 17 investments and 59 pitches; will they top this, this year? In these tough economic times the Dragons, new and old, put their own hard earned money on the table.
This ten part series will see a host of original and unique ideas pitched to the Dragons with everything from bull semen to flavoured butter. But will the Dragons invest? And if more than one Dragon is interested who will come out on top? The Dragons have turned up the heat in the Den and are ready to go head to head to secure the best investments.
