Quotes

Himself - Dragon: When you walk into the bank and ask the bank manager for a loan, and he says "No", all your friends and family will tell you "The bank manager's wrong", when you go into an investor and he says "No", all your friends and family, said "The investor is wrong". You got a fantastic idea, but one day you have to wake up to the reality, and understand... that your friends and family are wrong, and you're wrong, because it is not gonna sell.

The X Factor for the Middle Classes
8 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am not a fan of reality TV, but I do really enjoy Dragons' Den. I concept of the show is simple, budding entrepreneurs pitch there business ideas to the Dragons, all of them leading business people, and offer a percentage of there company in exchange for investment. Some of the people who go onto the show have poor idea or just do not think things thought and it is entertaining watching the Dragons rip them to pieces. However, there are some people who do have good ideas and get the investment there need, such as the man who created Reggae Reggae sauce and the Watford goalkeeper Richard Lee for his shop Dr. Cap. There are also people who have good ideas but do not get the investment they want, normally because the Dragons make them an offer that is unacceptable or there is a hole in the pitch. People who do the best in the show are ones who have a good safety invention or show that there company is already profitable.

The reason why I summarise this program as X Factor for the Middle Classes because people watch it to see people get humiliated, especially the arrogant people and want to see conflict. But there are clever people who come up with very good ideas and Dragons' Den is an interesting program and does show an aspect to how the business world works.
