BullRing at the Festival of Enterprise: The Bulls Were Grabbed by the Horns!

BDC were proud to collaborate with some of the region’s leading figures in business at the Festival of Enterprise 2019. Growth specialists, entrepreneurs and start-ups were amongst the attendees and speakers. This was the biggest event in Birmingham’s business calendar with footfall of over 5,000 over the duration of the two days. We facilitated a BullRing session, AKA, Birmingham’s real-life answer to Dragon’s Den…

No Bull From our Bulls!

Six exciting ventures were brave enough to pitch their investment opportunity to our panel of Bulls. The panel comprised of local business legends. The Bulls included Co-Founder of Grenade, Alan Barratt, Co-Founder of Roman Originals, Peter Christodoulou, Chris Deering, AKA, The Father of the Playstation and Kevin Caley, Founder of Thincats. The Bulls aimed to-the-point questions and gave their no-bull nous to the companies pitching.

Dom Portman, Founder of DAPV, pitched in the BullRing. He said “Pitching in the BullRing was a great experience. The instant feedback given by the audience and Bulls gave a clear indication of how my pitch was received and the feedback from Bulls who have been at the top of their industries was invaluable.”

The BullRing is for every type of business. From tech to fashion, food to hair care, this is the platform for budding entrepreneurs and start ups to showcase their investment opportunity.

B.D. Dalton, Founder of the BullRing said “The BullRing made some amazing steps forward today in being the showcase for up and coming businesses. Our Bulls were superb examples of entrepreneurs that give back. My vision for the BullRing is to be a place where we can create some investment opportunity for entrepreneurs, businesses and ideas.”

The atmosphere was electric and attendees loved the green-pepper-red-tomato style voting on whether the pitch was investa-bull or not! Who knows, our line-up of investment opportunities could be the next big thing…
