A Money4NONPROFITS Event
You are no doubt familiar with the TV show Dragon’s Den, where wanna-be entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to a panel of successful business owners, with the hope of securing finance for their start-up. This is similar but with Grant Makers (Funders).
In 2021, our Funders’ Den will be held in cyberspace and six Black, Asian, multi-ethnic and refugee (BAMER) led charities and social enterprises can pitch to Grant Making organisations for a chance to win a pot of money.
At the event will be representatives from leading Trusts and Foundations such as: here are funders we had during our 2020 event. Trust for London, Tudor Trust, Esmée Fairbairn, BBC Children in Need, CommUNITY Barnet, Procressi Initiative, The Heritage Lottery Community Fund, and Comic Relief!
Funders from Dragons Den 2020
Applications to pitch live at the Dragons Den will be available from 2nd August and is open to AVOCADO+ Alumni and BAMER Led NonProfits. Please email us for Grant conditions.
Even if you are not pitching on the day, we will have raffles and prizes, so you could still be a winner.
More than that, all organisations that attend the Dragons Den will leave with the practical knowledge and confidence to secure funding in the future and build real resilience.
