Speaking about return of the series Ray McCarthy, Commissioning Editor, RTÉ television said: “We’re delighted to see the series returning to RTÉ One. Not only does ‘Dragons’ Den’ provide hugely engaging television viewing for Irish audiences but it also offers invaluable support for Irish entrepreneurs who have been key to the Irish economy’s recovery and RTÉ is committed to supporting emerging business ideas.”

CEO of ShinAwil, Larry Bass, said: “Dragons’ Den’ is one of the most robust television formats in the world and we are delighted to open the Den again for entries. As Ireland fights back against recession, ‘Dragons’ Den’ offers new entrepreneurs the opportunity to seek investment to power their ambitions. We want to see what type of business’s are now out looking for investment.”

Applications are now open for start-ups, current businesses looking to expand or people who feel they have a lucrative business idea.
