Just two places left for entrepreneurs at LISTEX’s Dragon’s Den

LISTEX’s Dragon’s Den returns on Wednesday 27th September and there are just two places left for new businesses or individuals to apply. This Forum sessions sees entrepreneurs pitch for investment or mentoring in front of our four ‘friendly’ dragons.

LISTEX is inviting any company or individual who has an idea, product or even the start of a snowsports business, to apply to pitch during LISTEX 2017 at The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead. If the idea is good enough, the companies or individuals may be offered mentoring, publicity or even investment from one of the ‘Dragons’.

If you are interested in registering to be considered for the LISTEX Dragon’s Den, please email pitch@listex.co.uk outlining your project or product with some background information. You will need to be available to pitch on Wednesday 27th September from 14.00 – 16.00. You will get a free LISTEX access pass for your involvement.

This year’s panel of Dragons are all entrepreneurs who have run successful businesses both inside and outside the snowsports industry. On the Dragons Den panel for 2017 are Kate Whittaker – Founder of MadDogSki and a successful branding and marketing consultant, Dominic Killinger – Founder of InTheSnow Magazine and successful BBC Dragons Den contestant, Simon Holmes – experienced marketer and Commercial Director at Ski-Lifts and Nick Williams – Owner of chalet tour operator Mountain Heaven and former management consultant.

LISTEX is set to attract over 100 snowsports companies from across the industry and snowsports press for two days of networking, growing business and learning about industry trends and innovations.
