How r u guys doing? Sorry for the break in transmission. Slow internet service is a real downer!!
Anyway, what have you been up to?
I have been enjoying my holiday.
My birthday was this weekend!!! Feel free to leave some birthday prayers in the comment section. Much appreciated. Had a fab time anyway.
I watched the first episode of Dragons' Den Nigeria this weekend. I was really impressed.
Dragon's Den is an entrepreneurial reality show which allows budding entrepreneurs with the opportunity to present their business ideas to 'Dragons' - established business titans who then have the option of investing in their companies. Each player pitches a business scheme, telling us how much they need to float the business. The Dragons can invest as much or as little as they like in return for...an agreed percentage of the business.
Each Dragon can pledge as much money as they like, or nothing at all. But players have to raise ALL the cash they ask for. If an idea need 1,000,000 Naira and the Dragons offer a total of 750,000k, the player leaves empty handed.
The show has had successful runs in various markets including the UK and Canada.
Check out some details below.
