Dragons’ Den is a competitive team activity is based upon the popular TV series where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas for a business to secure investment finance from elite business entrepreneurs. We use this resource during assessment centres and team development days. Groups have 3.5 hours to form teams, devise a business idea and define their market.
They will also put together a ‘pitch’ for investment from the Dragons. This activity requires demonstration of the following competency areas: Team Working – Creativity – Working to a Deadline – Presentation Skills – Influencing – Innovation – Critical Reasoning – Numeracy – Research.
The activity runs over the course of a typical classroom day (approx 6 hours for teams to develop their concept, pitch their ideas and receive feedback) should you require assessment materials and a competency framework to support this activity Spectrain would be happy to design these for you. This resource is in PowerPoint format and comes with an animated slide show containing assessment criteria.
