The Flintshire Business Entrepreneurship Network is to hold its third Dragons’ Den-style event.
The Network, founded by Flintshire businessman, Askar Sheibani, CEO of Comtek Network Systems UK Ltd, is managed by the Communities First Flintshire East team and was launched in November 2012
Using an Enterprise Club model and Dragons’ Den-style events, the aim is to increase the number of people involved in entrepreneurship within the region.
Two Dragons’ Den events have already been held for young people aged 16-24 years who are considering starting a business.
They discuss their business concept and ideas with the Dragons who then provide feedback and advice.
The Dragons are locally-recruited business people who provide their time on a voluntary basis.
The next Dragons’ Den event will be held as part of a jobs and skills fair at Deeside Leisure Centre on the 24 September 2013 and is open to all ages.
