Braintree district: Mums victorious on Dragons' Den
2:00pm Tuesday 25th September 2012 in News
Two mums entered the Dragons’ Den with their innovative children’s bags - and came out victorious.
Kellie Forbes, from Great Bardfield, and Gill Hayward, from London, received offers from all five multi-millionaire business gurus, Duncan Bannatyne, Hilary Devey, Theo Paphitis, Deborah Meaden and Peter Jones.
All offered the £60,000 investment the pair wanted for their YUU activity backpacks, with Duncan wanting a 25 per cent share of their business, YUUworld, and the others asking for 30 per cent.
But the canny businesswomen asked if Deborah and Peter would work together - and they agreed, offering £60,000 in return for a 15 per cent share each.
Full story in tomorrow's Braintree and Witham Times.
