Dragons' Den returns for a seventh series to RTÉ One on Sunday April 17th at 9.30pm featuring two new Dragons, Alison Cowzer and Eleanor McEvoy, alongside returning favourites Gavin Duffy, Barry O'Sullivan and Eamonn Quinn.
Alison Cowzer is co-founder and Marketing/Innovation Director of East Coast Bakehouse, Ireland's only large scale biscuit manufacturing business based in Drogheda. She is also co-founder and Managing Director of 'The Company of Food', a specialist food investment business. Joining her will be Eleanor McEvoy, the CEO of Budget Energy Ltd, one of the leading providers of low cost electricity in the Northern Ireland market with over 60,000 residential and commercial customers. A serial entrepreneur, she previously set up and sold two multi-million euro businesses.
This eight part series will see a host of original and unique ideas pitched to the Dragons with everything from food, fashion, beauty, fitness, education and journalism. But will the Dragons invest? And if more than one Dragon is interested who will come out on top? The Dragons have turned up the heat in the Den and are ready to go head to head to secure the best investments.
The seventh series of Dragons' Den has also seen the highest percentage of female entrepreneurs in the history of the show. Huge evidence that the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well and with over €930k invested this series promises to deliver some great Irish success stories!
