You have a great idea…so how do you get it done?
The BBC edition of Dragons Den has some advice for creating the perfect pitch.
I have enjoyed watching the Dragon’s Den. We sponsored the Australian series with Idealog magazine and I think it did wonders for our fledgling profile. The Kiwi series has just finished. Not really up to snuff, not enough respect betwen the ’dragons’. The local producers didn’t seem to have the maturity to understand the concept and much of the feedback I have heard from seasoned business people confirms my view (though I would be interested to hear yours).
The British show was the best of the three. The BBC have a good site to support the series. I found this on the site. I think will be useful to anyone who wants to persuade someone to come on board with their idea. (Make sure you click the video link at the top of the story.)
Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years. And we're asking for your support so we can keep telling those stories, inspire more entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and keep pushing New Zealand forward. Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription, an Idealog t-shirt and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
