Durban Chamber Of Commerce And Industry’s “Dragons Den”
Bruce McDonald of Genuity recently participated in the Durban Chamber Of Commerce and Industry’ “Dragons Den”.
Local SME Entrepreneurs had the opportunity to present their business plans and needs to a panel of “Dragons” with the hope of gaining valuable advice and potentially securing financial investment. Bruce McDonald had the privilege of sitting as one of three “Dragons” on the adjudicating panel.
The ideas presented were innovative and by and large well-considered and articulated. After the presentations, the “Dragons” deliberated on the most promising pitch and idea, returning to give their feedback to the respective SME’s and their peers. It was encouraging to witness the calibre and authenticity of the process first-hand. Genuity would like to compliment the entrepreneurs on their courage and innovation as well as the Chamber for its support and facilitation of much needed SME development.
