Bassetlaw Dragons' Den
Are you brave enough to step into the Bassetlaw Dragons' Den? If so, you could be in the running to win £5000 for your business to help develop a new and innovative product or idea.
COULD YOURS BE BASSETLAW’S NEXT ‘BIG’ IDEA?
Bassetlaw District Council and its team of Dragons are looking to invest in the district’s next ‘big’ idea and would like to help home grown companies fulfil their potential.
If you are a Bassetlaw-based business or entrepreneur, employ less than 50 people and have a brilliant new idea that you’d like to develop or launch, the council would love to hear from you.
Their Dragons will select 3 companies to enter the ‘Bassetlaw Dragons' Den’ and make their pitch for £5,000!
Deadline for entries is by 5pm on Friday 24th February 2017 and the Dragons' Den event will take place in front of a live audience on Wednesday 15th March at 5.30pm at Worksop Town Hall.
£5,000 PRIZE OF FUNDING
The event is intended to give businesses or individuals a cash boost with a new and initiative idea or product that they may need help to create and, should their pitch really impress their Dragons, there may also be the chance of additional investment.
Cllr Jo White, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is just starting out in the world of business or for a company who have hit on the next big idea and need a cash boost.”
“We’d like to see applications from all sectors of business and I am particularly looking forward to seeing which three businesses will be going head to head in front of our Dragons.”
The successful companies who make it through to the final stage will be required to pitch their idea, make a creative presentation and field questions from the Dragons.
HOW TO ENTER
Deadline for entries is by 5pm on Friday 24th February 2017.
The Bassetlaw Dragons' Den will be held on Wednesday 15th March 5.30-8.00pm at Worksop Town Hall.
