What is Dragons’ Den and when is it on?
Dragon’s Denis back for it’s final episode tonight on BBC Two at 9pm.
Budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multimillionaires who are willing to invest their own cash to kick-start the businesses.
After each pitch, the Dragons have the opportunity to ask questions about the venture.
The entrepreneurs don’t always have to answer, but of course what they choose not to address could very well affect the outcome.
A Dragon who, having heard the pitch, does not wish to invest, must declare themselves “out”, implying that they leave the discussion.
The line up this year includes two new Dragons.
Supplement supremo Tej Lalvani and cashpoint queen Jenny Campbell – will be brandishing their chequebooks alongside serial investor Deborah Meaden, technology titan Peter Jones and fashion retail tycoon Touker Suleyman.
