Steven Bartlett joins the entrepreneurial BBC TV hit show Dragons’ Den for Series 19 at just 28, as he makes history as the show's youngest ever Dragon.
Sarah Clay, the BBC’s Commissioning Editor of Entertainment says: “As well as being our youngest ever Dragon, Steven’s unique approach to business will bring a whole new dynamic to the Den. He brings a wealth of experience from the social media, technological and brand building worlds. I’m so excited to see him in the next series.”
Steven Bartlett says: “I’ve been watching Dragons’ Den since I was 12 years old - it was my first window into the real world of business and investing. It’s a tremendous honour to join the Den, hopefully representing a new generation of entrepreneurs, inspiring young and specifically under-represented entrepreneurs to follow in my footsteps.”
Entrepreneurs pitch for investment in the Den from five Dragons, venture capitalists willing to invest their own money in exchange for equity.
You can catch Steven in action on BBC1 from January 6th 2022.
