Episode 7: David Monson


Q: Explain your Dragon's Den experience?
A: The Dragon's Den experience was fantastic, No matter how much you prepare and imagine yourself in front of the Dragons nothing can prepare you for that moment you walk up those stairs into the Den. It is one of those once in a life time experiences and im really glad I took the chance to appear on the show.

Q: Who was the toughest Dragon?
A: The toughest dragon for me was Ramona

Q: Were you nervous?
A: Yes

Q: Were you surprised by some of the questions?
A: I wasn't really as I knew they could have asked me absolutely anything.

Q: Who was most interested in your idea?
A: Peter Casey

Q: Would you have done anything differently?
A: I would have tried to relax a little more.

Q: Would you recommend applying for Dragon's Den to any other budding entrepreneurs?
A: I would totally recommend applying to Dragons Den.

Q: What does this mean to you personally?

Q: In five year's time where do you see your product/company?
A: I see the brand Monson Irish Jewelry being recognised for its quality and being famous for its use of wood. Hopefully providing employment for up to 12 people exporting products and little pieces of Ireland all around the world.

Our new range which has been designed by our team is really unique and each piece now carries the tag "love, loyalty, friendship" under the Claddagh symbol perfect for special gifts.

Q: What is your lasting memory of the Den?
A: My lasting memory will be Peter's Enthusiasm and excitement about the product, he was the first to walk up and check out the pieces which was really exciting.

Q: At any point did you think you wouldn't get the investment?
A: Yes right until the End, but I had a good feeling Peter really liked the work and was able to see how much work had gone into the building the brand up to that stage.
