Six adventurous contestants will have to face the four Dragons in a fight to win them over with their business ideas in the hope of gaining a real financial investment.

The four high-profile entrepreneurs are ready to give away thousands of pounds!

The six were short-listed from applications which were open to all students and graduates from April 24 2014. These six will face the four business entrepreneurs, or Dragons, in their attempt to see their business ideas go from a theoretical imagination to a practical reality.
