Apply to enter the Den

If you've got a great business idea to put to our venture capitalists, here's where you can apply to take your place in the Den.

How to apply:

Download the application form (106KB) and either email or post it as directed in the download.

As part of normal selection process we may approach entrepreneurs, or they may apply direct. In each case all applications are processed in the same way. To be considered all candidates need to submit an application form and these are then subject to the same casting criteria. Unfortunately, due to the high number of applicants, only those people who are shortlisted will be contacted. However, we do consider all applications carefully. Once shortlisted for consideration applicants will enter due diligence, but ultimately the final selection for participation will be decided on a number of factors and the Producers decision is final.
