Dragons’ Con – A Sunday Mirror investigation

Wednesday 18 October 2006

I just stumbled across this story on the Mirror newspaper website:

DRAGONS’ CON – Winners miss out on £1.3 million Investors back out of their deals
By Nick Owens And Louise Ford – 17 September 2006

HIT TV show Dragons’ Den is today branded a sham – where most of the winners never receive a penny.

The super-rich Dragons pledge tens of thousands of pounds to struggling entrepreneurs to help their businesses.

But a Sunday Mirror investigation reveals how 13 of the 19 contestants promised cash on the BBC show have not received any. The total amount unpaid comes to almost £1.3 MILLION.

In the meantime many of their businesses have floundered.

Today furious contestants lift the lid on what really happens – or doesn’t happen – when the cameras stop rolling. We can reveal how.
