Episode 5: Guard Dog Texts
Q: Explain your Dragon's Den experience?
A: The experience was one we will never forget. A long day waiting around but it was broke up nicely with interviews, photographs and the make-up :) along with countless pints of diluted orange. The pitch coach was also very helpful and experience we can bring with us to the future
Q: Who was the toughest Dragon?
A: I suppose they were all tough in their own way,thats why they are where they are. Not sitting on the fence- Niall O'Farrell.
Q: Were you nervous?
A: We were probably more nervous driving down to it than we were when we got to the venue.
Q: Were you surprised by some of the questions?
A: Not really, we had prepared for every kind of question.
Q: Who was most interested in your idea?
A: Its hard to gauge, I would like to say Gavin Duffy and he is also the one that we would have wanted.
Q: Would you have done anything differently?
A: We probably should have stepped in when it started to go down hill and make sure that the dragons had a proper grasp of our concept. But when you're in there it's a completely different situation.
Q: Would you recommend applying for Dragon's Den to any other budding entrepreneurs?
Q: What does this mean to you personally?
A: Its definitely something we can look back on with a sense of achievement, alright we didn't get investment but it's still something for the CV. Not many have climbed those steps.
Q: In five year's time where do you see your product/company?
A: Definitely without the investment it will take time to build up but we will continue to work hard at it.
Q: What is your lasting memory of the Den?
A: (Im out, Im out, Im out, Im out, Im out.) No, its a great experience and something you don't get to do every day. We may come back next year, In hindsight we probably weren't ready for investment just right now.
