Q: Explain your Dragon's Den experience?
A: Sub real experience!!
Q: Who was the toughest Dragon?
A: Bobby , not so much tough but I could see he had no interest what so ever from the very beginning and he was not very approachable
Q: Were you nervous?
A: Very nervous! Terrified!
Q: Were you surprised by some of the questions?
A: Not really, I had expected to be questioned on financials more than I was, I didn't even get a chance to explain my projected sales from my business plan as I was cut off by Bobby, even though you are expecting the questions coming at you once you are in the Den everything changes, none of the answers you had rehearsed come out as you wanted them to come out!!
Q: Who was most interested in your idea?
A: Sean O'Sullivan
Q: Would you have done anything differently?
A: Loads!! I would have been less nervous, and I would definitely show more passion about my idea, because I believe in what I am doing 100% but I was so terrified to be on the Den that I didn't get to defend my idea as I would have liked to.
Q: Would you recommend applying for Dragon's Den to any other budding entrepreneurs?
A: Absolutely, I would do it myself again in the morning!
Q: What does this mean to you personally?
A: It means first of all that I have a chance for my website to be advertised on TV, which is fantastic, second of all it means that I know I can stand up in front of 5 investors and speak in public about my idea without actually dying!! From now on any other presentation I have to do will be a piece of cake! LOL and Last but not least it has given me even more determination to get Mypetreview off the ground and making it big time, Ill show those Dragons!!
Q: In five year's time where do you see your product/company?
A: I see Mypetreview as the number 1, international website for pet owners, used in many countries across Europe and well established in America.
Q: What is your lasting memory of the Den?
A: Laughing!! I laughed a lot, I had a great day filming and even though I didn't get the investment it is a day I will never forget!!
