In the UK at least season five of Dragon’s Den has started and is already in, about its 3rd episode. Nothing of interest yet with digital out of home (is no-one prepared to take their investment idea to these folks? No? Well I probably wouldn’t be either!!)
Anyway, I am sure it is not supposed to be there, but I found this ‘archive’ of the Dragon’s Den episode on YouTube. It’s the episode where Mark Greenhalgh pitches his Cabtivate idea. It’s very defnitely well worth a watch – especially for non-UK folks who may not have seen it first time around on BBC television.
The comments from the Dragons are very interesting – some don’t get it at alll but those who do focus on the cash flow and balk at the fact that Cabtivate was (allegedly) losing £6K a week in its first year of operation.
Mark Greenhalgh now runs Tapinto
There is still a lot of bad feeling it seems, up in Edinburgh, in the way that Cabtivate went bankrupt. Businesses do go bankrupt, it’s a fact of life.
