Dragons Den 2021

Meet Funders, Pitch for Funding and Win Prizes

Sept 17, 2021

You are no doubt familiar with the TV show Dragon’s Den, where wanna-be entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to a panel of successful business owners, with the hope of securing finance for their start-up. This is similar but with Grant Makers (Funders).

In 2021, our Funders’ Den will be held in cyberspace and six Black, Asian, multi-ethnic and refugee (BAMER) led charities and social enterprises have the opportunity to pitch to Grant Making organisations for a chance to win a pot of money (amount TBC).

At the event will be representatives from leading Trusts and Foundations such as: Trust For London, Tudor Trust, Esmée Fairbairn, BBC Children in Need, CommUNITY Barnet, Procressi Initiative, The Heritage Lottery Community Fund, and Comic Relief !

Applications to pitch live at the Dragons Den will open in the summer of 2021 and is open to AVOCADO+ Alumni and BAMER Led NonProfits. Please email us for Grant conditions.

Even if you are not pitching that day, you could still win lots of prizes. In addition, the first 100 people to log on that day will get the opportunity to network in a dedicated room with Funders.

More than that, all organisations that attend the Dragons Den will leave with the practical knowledge and confidence to secure funding in the future and build real resilience.
