Richmond's Den Enterprise Programme

Richmond’s Den is currently closed for entries, but read on to find out more.

How it works

Our flagship enterprise development programme Richmond’s Den invites pre-start up or early stage entrepreneurs to ‘take the next step’. Entrants simply submit 500 words to describe their ideas and plans. All entrants are offered direct support to develop their plans further and around 8 are shortlisted for a competitive ‘Dragons’ Den’ style stage. Three of these progress to a final, presenting again to a panel and an audience, with finalists winning between £1000 and £10,000.

You can read more about the progress of this year's competition, and express an interest in the next programme, on our main Richmond's Den website.
