Bev Parr from B J Parr Ltd joined a panel of female dragons to hear business pitches from budding entrepreneurs. One of the winners received his cheque for £2,500 at B J Parr offices Mansfield Woodhouse today. Duwayne Watson who has set up CASFP (College and sixth form parties) Ltd was pleased to be chosen from 8 candidates to receive his grant.
Bev was delighted to award this grant, saying, “ I can immediately see the potential of this business as my daughter is 17yrs old and would love to go to an event organised by Duwayne. That age range is too old for youth clubs and too young for nightclubs so where do they go?”
The Dragon Den style event was organised by the Foundation. Nina Dauban, our Chief Executive said “This was our 10th and most exciting den as we had an exceptional panel of female business leaders and a great selection of new business ideas. We all enjoyed it so much we are going to do it again. So if you have a business idea and want to apply please keep an eye our website and social media streams where details of the next den will be posted in the spring.
