Dragon's Den Regional Winners

Students Raniella San Sebastian, Mile Fonoia, Wilson Lesa and Naotia Atiana won the Dragon's Den Regional Finals on Monday at the Vodafone Events Centre. 

The team impressed the panel of 'Dragons' with their business called the Black Bulb Co, which produces a black garlic aioli. 

Over 80 teams took part in the Dragon's Den Prelims, from which 15 teams were selected for the regional final. 

The competition is run as part of the Lion Foundation's Young Enterprise Scheme (YES).  YES students set up their company, create real products or services, compile and implement a business plan and make real profit or loss. For all students, the business knowledge they develop is supplemented by skills in teamwork, communication, problem solving, negotiation, and decision making. Students learn through experiencing the value of innovative thinking and develop enterprising attributes. YES is an incredible learning experience that thousands of students participate in each year.

The Black Bulb Co will compete in the national final later this year.
