Dragon's Den Event!

28 March 2017


Has your charity or community group got an idea for a project? An issue that needs help in solving? Or a problem that needs overcoming?

Community Action and Business in the Community are holding a Dragon's Den Event with some friendly Dragons on Thursday 27 April at 12 noon at Marble Hall, 80 Nightingale Road, Derby DE24 8BG as part of Responsible Business Week 2017.

The event will see 'Dragons' from businesses across Derby - provisional participants are Toyota, Derby College, Smith Partnership, Intu, GF Tomlinson and East Midlands Chamber of Commerce - listen to pitches from organisations on ideas, projects and problems.

Six charities or community groups will be selected and given the opportunity to present their project, issue, problem or idea. They will then get the benefit of advice from the combined knowledge and experience of the Dragons to help them take the issue presented forward. This is a unique opportunity to raise your organisation's profile with key businesses in the city.

To take part in this exciting event just think of an idea, complete a proposal form and return to Community Action. Six lucky organisations will then be asked to come along and present their pitch.

Tip - try to make your idea, project, proposal or problem as challenging as possible to increase your chances of being selected!

Interested? Email Nick Pritchard or call 01332 227716 for a proposal form.

Good luck!
