The successful BBC Dragons’ Den TV programme is currently seeking pitches for the 2011 series. Dragons’ Den gives entrepreneurs the chance to pitch to a panel of the UK’s most successful business people who have pledged to invest their own money in the best ideas.
Further details are on the BBC website at www.bbc.co.uk/dragonsden/, where you can also see how previous entrants fared.
Before submitting any idea to Dragons’ Den you should make sure that you are not disclosing any commercially sensitive information. In particular, you should not disclose information about any potentially patentable invention until a patent has been filed. Members of staff in HSC bodies are therefore advised to seek advice from HSC Innovations before forming any application.
