BBC Hackney Dragon’s Competition

Written by Active Minds on Monday the 18th of June 2012.


Active Minds were pleased to be part of BBC Radio 1 Extra’s Hackney Dragons competition this month. Launched as part of the BBC’s Hackney Weekend to encourage young people to start businesses of their own.

Similar to the TV show, Active Minds and five other businesses pitched to three “Dragon’s” and an audience of young people from across Hackney. Ben’s pitch was received extremely well and he managed to secure a further meeting in July to discuss possible investment. We will let you know how this goes.
