MyFirstMillion: Your chance to be a Dragon
Wednesday, 21 November 2012 from 18:00 to 21:30 (GMT)
Cambridge, United Kingdom
CUE has partnered with Dialectyx Solutions (www.dialectyx.com) to bring you an exciting new training session!
With the Dragon's Den MyFirstMillion software from Dialectyx, participants will get to try their hands at being on the opposite side of the investment table and play the roles of Dragons. You will view actual pitches from Dragon's Den, decide on which companies you want to invest in, find out what the Dragon's decided, and learn the fate of the companies after several years of operations.
Through this, participants will get a feel of the key points that investors consider, and will be able to better structure their own business plans to target these points. In addition, the team who makes the most prudent investments with the greatest returns will stand to win attractive prizes!
Pizzas and drinks will be provided. Spaces are limited, so sign up now!
