Dragons Den 2017
Dragons Den was a true test of our 3rd Business Students presenting and speaking skills. Facing four industry specialists and presenting their business idea for comment and possible funding in our very own Dragon’s Den at EMENDY.
The Dragons consisted of:
Charlie Monson “the connector”. Charlie specializes in the connection of individuals and has friends in all the right places.
Barbara Visser is a web designer, social media trainer, speaker and business mentor.
Martin Willemse is owner and director of EMENDY Multimedia Technology Institute and a serial entrepreneur.
TowdeeMac is our resident celebrity and Music lecturer. TowdeeMac is well known in the South African market for his truly African tunes and excellent music.
Facing the dragons one by the one the students had 10 minutes to present their business idea. Their research, presentation and business plan was scrutinized and commented on by the Dragons. The Dragons were then also able to give advice and further expand on the ideas that came from our students.
Some business ideas ranged from a Music resort for celebrities to work on the new tunes with top quality facilities and even better food and accommodation, to places where stringed instruments can be repaired with expert workmanship, to practice halls and rooms for choirs and bands, also providing music therapy.
Our students definitely did not disappoint.

We thank our Dragons, Charlie, Barbara, Martin and TowdeeMac for their time and input given to the students. All who attended this event walked away with new knowledge and inspiration as they go and follow their dreams.
