I was really looking forward to Dragon’s Den this year with the addition of Sean O Sullivan of Avego and had great hopes that we were going to see some innovation and more technical products.
I have just sat through episode two and its more of the same with zero innovation, in fact the most interesting product was a cattle gate which I was thrilled to see funded.
Other than that what we are looking at is basically The Late Late Show of many years ago.
In the first two episodes we have had products that are available elsewhere by other manufacturers, “exclusive distributors” and a guy who claim to fame was that “he invented Google Streetview” an incredulous claim that even threw the very unflappable Sean.
If this is what we have to look forward to for the rest of the season I think it will go the way of “The Bill” show very quickly.
As a big fan of the UK version I really hang my head in shame watching this.
Am I being too harsh here? are these the most innovative companies looking for funding in Ireland?
