The E-learning module will walk you step by step through the topic. This will comprise of videos from entrepreneurs in the Den and a notepad so you can make “virtual” annotations. There will also be quick questions within each module which are not graded, but are designed to help reinforce the concepts which have been introduced. An expert coach will help you along the way, giving important pointers and informing you why he does or does not agree with your analysis.

Recommended Reading Upon completion of each E-learning module, you are given a source for further points of study. This will usually be in the form of a chapter from a textbook.

Each case study has increasing levels of difficulty in terms of learning outcomes and challenges to fast track your development. Again, each case study will set out clearly the learning outcomes and the key skills which you will practice and develop. When deciding whether or not to invest you will get the opportunity to watch a genuine pitch from the Dragons’ Den, ask questions and rate the Market, Competitors and Risk. You can then see how this correlates to the Dragons’ Judgement and Computer’s Judgement as well as discovering the case conclusion. You will progress on the “Journey to Success” bar accordingly.
