Episode 1

Series presented by Evan Davis, in which budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multimillionaires willing to invest their own cash to kick-start the business.

A former professional boxer spars with the Dragons, charming them with his no-nonsense pitching style, and isn't afraid to get down and give them twenty. A twenty-seven-year-old from County Down faces some tough questions over his valuation at ten times the revenue he is forecasting, not a thing that traditionally endears an entrepreneur to an investor.

And it's all too much for one emotional entrepreneur who struggles to hold back the tears when pitching her new hairstyling concept.

Plus, a Warrington-based chip shop owner showers the Den in confetti, three friends from North London perfect the art of miming in their pitch, and the multimillionaire investors find themselves singing about vegetables.
