Dragons Den

Ok, everyone has watched this show on BBC2 I was just wondering for a bit of fun was there any budding entrepreneurs among us in this site? Have you ever had any ideas that could be taken to the dragons den :thumbsup:

I had an idea which I thought would have been good but found it was already being used...Typical.. The idea was a digital handheld which waiters and waitresses alike would use to take orders instead of your normal pad and pen. It would have the menu loaded and the waiting staff would just have to select the dish(es) the customer required. The orders then would be transfered to the kitchen which would display on a large screen so the Chefs would get the orders in real time avoiding mistakes and delay and also spelling and grammer mistakes by the waiting staff....


Good Luck

Generally speaking, if you can't spell entrepreneur it doesn't mean you can't be one, but if you don't have the gumption to look it up, it does mean you can't be one.


Thanks for your input Jdeal it was most appreciated...

Four dots is generally seen as excessive... three and a gap is much nicer.


Actually, if you're going to be picky, it's not just "much nicer", it's grammatically correct.

But who the hell cares anyway... :-D

Going back to topic, my OH has so many fantastic inventions in his head, I wish he would get on and make some and make us rich!! He really has a talent for it, and as he's an engineer he knows exactly how he would make them as well. I won't share any of his ideas in case he does eventually share them with the world!

when my hubbie was at school - many moons ago, he drew trainers with air bubbles in (before nike invented them) great idea but to young to understand getting the idea registered. we had another idea not so long ago when we had our little one for a vapour dummy, bascially i contacted a trademark company and they gave me advice what to do, but we have done nothing yet. i have great ideas but cannot put them on paper so they have to stay in my head

Its great to have, not only the mind tio think these ideas, but also have the ability to create them aswell. That is what I call true genius. I look forward to seeing him in the telly on the not to distant future..

Why no one has ever came up with a version of "Speak and Spell" for illiterate adults is beyond me.

Now that would be some invention... eh JDeal :p

(I hope you notice the I have the three dots and space this time ;-) )

Well, (as we're all at it) I feel it is my duty to inform you that the people you see displayed on your television are not actually 'in' the telly :whistling:

Dragons Den worked for the guy who invented that cable connector junction box. Now just sold to GEC I think for sale in 152 countries. He will be a millionaire very soon.

lol. I'm convinced though Mbeeching since I got SkyHD :whistling:
When I started this thread I'd never thought it would generate this much fun..:santa:

I had an idea a few years ago but I was only 14 and had no idea what to do with it - Twelve years on and I still think it could be useful, though I think the progression of technology has managed to dispose of its wider application.




My god! I nearly forgot. One of our customers was on last week's Dragons Den - Can anyone guess who?

Regrettably it was not the guy with the solar charger. Although it was someone that got shot down in flames, poor chap.

It had to be the guy then with the underwater adventure centre filled with robotic sea creatures.:oops:

My wife went to a presentation by 2 people who had been successful in getting funding from the Dragons. Instead of the 5 mins you see in front of the cameras apparently the whole thing takes a day and the dragons go through the account books.......the dragons may also delay signing the contracts (in one case it was the day before screening that the dragons eventually signed).

BTW Screwfix sell the choc blocs (which were on the last nights show) bought some about a year or so ago....

If you do have an idea DON'T TELL ANYONE ON HERE or someone else will patent or develop it (and you can't patent an idea, only a product)

The fish man.... like you want to go scubadiving with a robot shark....
#17
It was actually the guy who sells Madagascan chocolate!

We also had the couple from the Fenwick 'campaign for real gravy' Arms from Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares in the store a few months ago.

Just to add to the grammar police comments, most successful entrepreneurs never did well at school and commonly have a learning difficulty such as dyslexia; so to JDeal that statement was complete rubbish.

Kinda blows you out of the water.

I absolutely love Dragons Den, I literally cringe for the people under the spotlight, they seem to sweat buckets under the interrogations,did you know that some of them are in there for two hours but they only show you 5 mins on the tv, If you can try and read Duncan Ballyntyne's autobiography it's great.
#20
PS, I agree with Alfonse,most enterpeneurs (pun) are to busy making money to worry obsessively about spelling, they nomally hve secreatarys for that. Also, if you couldn't tell I'm Spellingly Challenged Ha!Ha!

I used to like it but its changed to an inventor coming along with an idea asking for business help from the Dragons to develop it. Now the inventor/ideas person seems to get shot down for not having a business stragety, profit/loss calculations, long term plan.............pffft That's what the Dragons are there to do, take the lead and help develop said product/invention, not always ask for 45-50% of anything brought forward to them, that took the fun out of it for me really.
#22
Yes I agree again Alphonse, they give them such a hard time over the books, if these people had this knowledge in the first place they wouldn't be asking the dragons they would be having lunch alongside them at some awards function.
#23
just a quick question guys!! out of all the inventions , which is the one you most wish you had invented.
