I am super excited to have been asked to be part of a Dragons' Den style event being ran by Denise Matthews and her team at Start Up Grind on Monday 27th February. Gibraltar is a hotbed for brilliant start-ups, and I have no doubt there'll be some amazing proposals waiting to take off and become part of another chapter in our story.
How do you get involved? Throughout the year, early-stage projects, startups & businesses are invited to submit their proposals to the forum, a small selection of which are selected to enter the "Den" (or on this occasion, the Sapphire Bar at The Sunborn) to deliver a 10-minute pitch followed by a 5-min Q&A. The application window is still open for consideration in relation to this round of pitches, more info can be found here.
On the evening, myself, Angelique Pearson (SRG Europe) and Danny Hook (Gibtelecom) will offer our insight and experience to select the winner who will receive a business aid bundle worth over £5000 comprising of:
5 days Office/Meeting Room space + 5 day Lounge Passes.
Hassans International Law Firm Ltd
5 hours legal work/ advice relating to the winning business proposal.
1 hour Marketing consulting session + Digital Marketing Plan
