Bluerock-ed Recognise Welsh Entrepreneurs with their own Dragons Den
The August meeting of Bluerock-ed, held at the Rockwool facility near Bridgend in South Wales, was a little extra special. As part of a celebration of Welsh entrepreneur success, BlueRock-ed staged their own version of Dragons Den.
Bluerock-ed is an exciting business development group aimed at top level entrepreneurs and executive managers, and targeted at helping them to exceed expectations, achieve their full potential and drive their business to future success.
I have been fortunate to photograph the Bluerock-ed events whilst also having the opportunity to listen to the fantastic and inspiring speakers.
The August 2016 event was special as the Bluerock-ed team had arranged for four entrepreneurs to pitch their business to four Dragons from Welsh business. Being the event photographer means that you are a bit of a voyeur and it was fascinating to watch the four businesses pitch their ideas and the engagement from the Dragons. Photographing the Dragons Den was a little bit special.
The Bluerock-ed Dragons were Linda Narbeth from Bluerock-ed, Paul Williams from Rockwool UK, James Taylor from SuperStars and Stephen Griffiths from DWA Accountants.
I was also in the room as the Dragons discussed the merits of each pitch and tried to decide which business should win. All four business concepts were strong and there was quite a debate over who would potentially benefit the most from winning.
After considerable deliberation, the Dragons selected Matthew Rogers from Go Fetch Ltd as the overall winner. Go Fetch Ltd specialises in transporting pets in the UK and overseas.
The other entrepreneurs were:
- Damien de Lartigue and Eze Phillips from Projection Screening
- Andrew Cronin from Aims Sports Academy
- Gemma Hallett from MiFuture
Congratulations to Matt and all those who took part. A great event showcasing 4 of Wales up-and-coming business success stories.
