If you’ve ever wanted to pitch on Dragon’s Den – but can only spare about six seconds – then you are in luck.
Former Dragon Doug Richard will be using Twitter and the video app Vine to accept very quick six second pitches as part of his Launch Me competition. If you haven’t used Vine yet, it’s the official video app for Twitter and videos are restricted to a length of six seconds. Here’s what a Vine looks like (courtesy of Doug Richard).
Doug’s Launcher programme provides funding for 18-30 year-old budding entrepreneurs. The best three pitches will get the chance to participate in a live Google+ Hangout with Doug to try and convince him that their business deserves a £10,000 loan for their idea. The winner will also receive ongoing business advice from Doug and enjoy a private lunch with him.
Do you think that you are able to pitch your business in six seconds? Simply tweet your business idea in a six second Vine using the hashtag #S4SLaunchMe. You’ve got until the 28th May to get your entries in. Check out SchoolforStartups for Terms and Conditions.
