The BBC has announced that Piers Linney, joint CEO of cloud service provider Outsourcery, has joined Dragons' Den for its 11th series on BBC Two.

Linney completes the line-up of Duncan Bannatyne, Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden and the other new Dragon, Kelly Hoppen, who joined last month.

Linney said: "Having been a professional and private investor, I stepped into what started out as personal investment to run it, and am now building a world-leading business.

"I am excited to have the opportunity to join Dragons' Den and once again support entrepreneurs both financially and through my extensive network.

"I also think I can widen the appeal of the Den to information economy entrepreneurs as they are key to the future success of the UK economy."

Ceri Aston, Executive Producer of Dragons' Den, said: "Piers is a new breed of Dragon. A young and dynamic digital entrepreneur, he has his finger on the pulse of an industry that has never been represented in the Den before.

"He's at the helm of a business that he is successfully building and growing, so his story is an inspiring one for any entrepreneur looking for investment on the show."
