23 May Into the Dragons’ Den
On Monday May 13th, all of our Level 3 Business Students visited the AUT South Campus to present their business pitches to the Young Enterprise Dragons’ Den judges.
Over the past term we have been developing a product or service and planning how it will work, who our product is aimed towards and how we will market the product. All of this information was presented to the judges at the pitch, in a short period of only five minutes. From the teams that we heard feedback from, their presentations went well, with the judges enjoying their idea and giving them suggestions on how to move forward or improve their business.
The event was important as it makes up 30% of our Business grade this year and helps us to see any issues in our product early on in the year, so we can have time to fix it before we get to the selling process. This helps us with Business in general, as it teaches us how to appeal to judges and be confident with presenting our product especially if we progressed to the next stage of pitches or for university.
