Episode 4: Golf Ball Cleaner
Q: Explain your Dragon's Den experience?
A: I found it to be a great experience. Who was the toughest Dragon? Two of the Dragons were apparently tough but I considered their critisism to be lacking a true understanding of the product.
Q: Were you nervous?
A: No...Due to the Professional and courteous manner of the organising staff.
Q: Were you surprised by some of the questions?
A: No, Not surprised by the Questions but surprised by the assumptions of two of the Dragons.
Q: Who was most interested in your idea?
A: I found Gavin Duffy & Norah Casey grasped the concept of the product and their reason for not investing was quite accurate as I could not put 100% of my efforts into the product myself. Would you have done anything differently... Yes... Perhaps i would have concentrated more on the cleaning aspects rather than the hygiene aspects of the device, as the hygiene is a specialised subject.
Q: Would you recommend applying for Dragon's Den to any other budding entrepreneurs?
A: Yes , but only if they were sure that all of the Dragons fully understood their product.
Q: What does this mean to you personally?
A: I found it a great experience and new experience for me.
Q: In five year's time where do you see your product/company?
A: I believe in five years time will be sold Worldwide particularly in warmer climates , where a dry dirty Golf Ball can only be cleaned in this way fast & hygienically. What is your lasting memory of the Den? My lasting memory of the Dragons Den was the outstanding attention paid to me by the organising staff which I greatly thank.
