Plus there is a big surprise in store for the young owner of a Fijian war club, known as a buli buli.

Dragons' Den


Theo Paphitis

It's a new series and another new raft of keen entrepreneurs are about to enter the Den and make a pitch for an investment that could make their business - and change their lives.

Here on the Red Button we get to peek behind the scenes and get the inside story on the investments made in the Den each week. What attracted the Dragons to the business? What did the other Dragons make of the deals? And why did the entrepreneurs take the deal?

  • Comment number 1.

    Hi Tess - surprised there isn't something on the 2012 US elections on this page considering it's probably the most significant thing happening this week around the world. It would be terrific if the BBC introduces some interactive content and polls around the Obama vs Romney showdown for viewers - definitely possible given the great job BBC's done with the Antique Roadshow Play Along concept. Think it would be superb to get a UK perspective on the election.
