I came across an interesting article from the Sun, one of England’s most read publications. It discussed how TV shows such as The Apprentice and Dragon’s Den have inspired young entrepreneurs to start businesses of their own.
The British version of The Apprentice stars Sir Alan Sugar instead of Donald Trump but it has a similar style and format as the popular American counterpart. Dragon’s Den is a show where entrepreneurs looking for funding can pitch their ideas to a panel of angel investors after which the angels either tear the business owner to pieces or make an offer to invest.
According to the Sun:
Nearly 2,000 new businesses are now created in Britain EVERY DAY, with one in ten entrepreneurs leaving school at 16 to work for themselves.
Have business television shows like The Apprentice inspired you to get your business started or take it to the next step?
