Published: August 20, 2015

 

We hosted an event in the style of the popular BBC programme Dragon’s Den mid August – held at the Pearce Institute in Govan. This was to provide people we work for with a business idea to obtain some funding to get their idea of the ground.

Well done to the 7 fabulous budding entrepreneurs who were all awarded seed funding to help get their venture started.

Their was an audience of around 40 in attendance consisting of C-Change Scotland employees as well as family and friends of participants; all their to show their support.

A big thank you to the 4 wonderful Dragons for giving their time and expertise: Stephen Cole – Director of Cole Advertising & Design, Elisabeth Gibson – Director of Project Ability, Maura Lynch – Depute Chief Executive Scottish Consortium for Learning Disability and Natalie McGarry – MP for Glasgow East.

Many thanks to our Sponsors who collectively contributed £800 to our Dragon’s Den fund. Our sponsors were: Aqua Specialist Environmental Services, Georgie Porgies – Fresh Affordable Catering, Benburb Football Club, Urban Electrical LTD & Lifelink.
