We were up against many different schools including Salesian College, Kings International College and Calthorpe Park.
In the morning, we were all gathered in the hall where we had to wait to present our ideas. We were all eager to share and it also meant that we had all morning to prepare for them.
After hours of preparation and waiting, it was finally our turn to present. It was nerve wracking at first but also very exciting at the same time! Not only did we pitch our ideas to the dragons, but also to an audience of business students at Calthorpe Park.
After each pitch, students were asked questions by the dragons about their ideas on the spot but we all managed to respond to them without hesitation which went really well.
At the end, the winners were announced: myself, Nga, and Sumdee won the competition where we asked for £50,000 in return for 60% of our company and got offered investments from all 4 dragons. We chose the dragon who was willing to give the full amount in return for 40% of our company.
The first place prize was a £50 Amazon voucher each. It was truly an amazing experience that helped us develop many new skills. We would like to thank Miss Burrow for supporting us and well done to everyone who participated!
