Streatham young entrepreneurs 'Dragons Den' event

The Hideaway and the Streatham Business Network will be hosting and presenting the first ever Streatham Youth Entrepreneurs Dragons Den event on the evening of the 5th of June at the Hideaway Jazz Club, 2 Empire Mews, Streatham SW16 2BF.

The event will bring together the local South London business community to celebrate local school children and their vision and aspirations as entrepreneurs, and their flair at innovation, as they pitch to our Dragons and compete for a Grand Prize on the night.

The children, all of whom attend local schools will pitch to our Dragons either as individuals or in teams. The evening will provide them with an opportunity to present their business ideas to a panel of experienced and successful business leaders and the wider business community and compete for a prize for the best overall combination of business plan and presentation.

Teams and individuals age 18 and under, who attend school in the area, have submitted their business plans to the panel and the 5 best plans have been selected to participate on the evening. The winning individual/team will receive a £500 prize; there will be a £300 2nd Prize and a £200 3rd prize. All the teams will be awarded commendations for their achievement on the evening.

The Streatham and wider South London business community is also being invited to come out support the young people, have a 2-course meal and do some great business networking on the evening.

Tickets for the evening can be purchased online here
