News: Six businesses to enter the den


Six Rotherham businesses will be looking to impress a panel of local Dragons next month in a bid to secure a prize of £1,500.

Rotherham Enterprise Board and UK Steel Enterprise are hosting the Dragons' Den-type event, inspired by the BBC show of the same name, offering local businesses a unique chance to further develop their already established business.

The event is aimed at businesses based in Rotherham that have been trading for three years or less and have the potential to grow.

The businesses have now been chosen to enter the den on July 7 at the Park Inn Rotherham where they will pitch their expansion dreams to a panel of successful Rotherham-based entrepreneurs.

The best pitch on the night will receive a prize of £1,500 to support their business'
growth potential, as well as possible capital investment opportunities.

Pizza chef, Danny West will pitch his unique business, Pizzatainment, that teaches children about the value of nutrition by showing them how to make stone-baked Italian pizzas.

Media production company, Renton Productions, will showcase their work on music videos, training videos, educational films and live events.

Sports Media Advertising will describe how they support local clubs and businesses by using advertising space in sports clubs.

Kara Chapman will outline plans for her Whistle Stop Sweet Shop operating in the renovated Imperial Buildings, that has a huge range of quality traditional, retro and modern sweets.

Jamie and Sharon Clarke will pitch their expansion plans following the launch of City Deal of the Day, a niche online marketing tool which brings slashed price deals from local businesses via email and online.

The team behind Enviro Thaw will highlight the potential of an environmentally friendly and non-toxic product used in China as an alternative to rock salt.

Last year's winner Fiona Morgan, owner of Very Delicious Ltd, will be passing on her own valuable knowledge and experience of the event to the prospective entrepreneurs by taking on the role of a dragon.

The Rotherham Enterprise Board is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and is led by successful business men and women from a wide range of different backgrounds and business sectors. They are using their experience to change the way business support is provided and make it more helpful to Rotherham entrepreneurs.
