Dragons’ Den calls for entrepreneurs to apply for new series

Alumni businesses of the BBC show include Levi Roots’ Reggae Reggae Sauce and Mainstage Travel

The BBC is once again calling for aspiring entrepreneurs to apply to enter the Dragons’ Den, in what will be the 13th series of its business pitching reality show.

The show, which sees applicants pitch business ideas to five high-profile venture capitalists, has maintained a steady viewership throughout its 10 year run and though the line up may have witnessed several changes, it’s clear from the latest episodes that the Dragons haven’t lost their bite.

Over the years the panel has helped to support some of the UK’s fastest growing start-ups with Levi Roots’ Reggae Reggae Sauce, featured in the Startups 100, and Young Guns to watch Aden Levin and Rob Tominey’s travel company Mainstage Travel just two of the show’s investment success stories.

The Dragons’ Den panel for the upcoming series is yet to be disclosed but Kelly Hoppen MBE and Duncan Bannatyne have already announced that they will not be returning.

Budding entrepreneurs and start-ups can apply via the confidential online application form, where your idea will be assessed on factors such as strength, growth and projected turnover. You must be over 18 to apply.
