With Series 10 of Dragons’ Den just beginning, is there room for another similar show on the BBC? Be Your Own Boss features Richard Reed, the co-founder of Innocent Drinks, the company who make those expensive smoothies.
He has £1 million to invest in someone who has a great business idea. It starts with 500 starry-eyed hopefuls, many of who will be deluded, who think they have invented the best thing since sliced bread. Some ideas include bubblegum-flavoured chicken, and a drinks dispenser. From these 500, he must select three, who will be challenged further.
Sounds like a cross between Dragons’ Den and X-Factor, and because I like Dragons’ Den (Unfortunately I can’t say the same about X-Factor) I might give it a try.
Be Your Own Boss is on BBC3, Wednesdays at 9:00pm
