BBC invites applications for Dragons’ Den

Whilst the BBC have not confirmed who will be replacing Hilary Devey, the firm favourite, as we reported a few months ago, for filling the vacant chair is self-made underwear multi-millionairess Michelle Mone.

However, whilst there might be a change in the ‘Dragon’ investors, the rules for the show have not changed as entrepreneurs will ask for a financial investment in return for an equity stake in their business. However, they must get at least the amount they ask for or they will walk away with nothing.

As in previous years The Dragons are prepared to listen to a pitch for any kind of business, but they must be convinced that it will make money and that there involvement will bring about a return on that investment otherwise they will declare themselves out.

You, will of course, need to have a business with proven financials and ideally products or business concept with a unique selling point, scalability and route to market.

The BBC will be auditioning throughout the coming months. If you would like an application form, send an email to or visit
