Episode 6: First Steps Forever
Q: Explain your Dragon's Den experience?
A: Overall it was terrific. The build up beforehand was exciting, the whole experience of the day was just amazing.
Q: Who was the toughest Dragon?
A: I don't think there was one dragon tougher than the other because I think they all asked some tricky questions that really put you on the spot.
Q: Were you nervous?
Q: Were you surprised by some of the questions?
A: Yes - Like "Which of you is the boss" or "what are Graham's faults as a business person?
Q: Who was most interested in your idea?
A: All the dragons showed interest, perhaps Niall entered into the most dialogue with us but we could never have thought any of the dragons were really interested. They don't give much away.
Q: Would you have done anything differently?
A: Maybe answer some questions differently that would let us talk about our business from another angle.
Q: Would you recommend applying for Dragon's Den to any other budding entrepreneurs?
A: Yes definitely, as long as they are prepared to risk all and really put their business on the line.
Q: What does this mean to you personally?
A: For both of us it is a huge personal achievement of something that we have worked on together.
Q: In five year's time where do you see your product/company?
A: Well established in the retail market with a strong online presence and widely established brand.
Q: What is your lasting memory of the Den?
A: Getting a spontaneous round of applause from the dragons after presenting our pitch and being told by Cassandra to "shut up" when Gavin was making up his mind, it was definitely not a time to speak as she thought I was about to potentially put my foot in it and she was right!
Q: At any point did you think you wouldn't get the investment?
A: Yes, as all the dragons said the same thing to us about struggling to make a decision and being torn between their heart and head, we felt that perhaps it wasn't going to go our way.
