Irish entrepreneur Sharon Keegan has managed to get the funding for her business. She has appeared on the television program Dragons’ Den in Britain. Three Dragons including Tej Lalvani, Sarah Davies, and Touker Suleyman have given the option to entrepreneurs to receive money. Sharon has decided to give them a 30 percent stake in her business.
Sharon is the founder of Peachylean which is the athleisure wear brand. She has secured £100,000 (€115,137) in investment for her business. She managed to impress millionaires in the show. Dragons’ Den is a show which has been recognized as a show whereby potential entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multimillionaires who are ready to invest their own cash.
She recalled that she used to watch the show with her family. Watching the show is like a family gathering for her when she was surrounded by her father and brother. Unfortunately, she lost her brother last year. The tragic incident forced her to participate in the show. She gave an outstanding pitch and asked the entrepreneur for £100,000 pounds funding in exchange for 11% of her business.
Three investors have offered her an amount which is the greatest milestone for her. She has studied their background and came to know that they all are dream teams for her. Sharon believed that the three of them are the greatest addition to her business as their knowledge and experience will help her grow her business.
Sharon disclosed that when she secured the investment she came out from the room and told her father about the greatest news. They both laughed and then cried remembering Alan who is the brother of Sharon and has passed away last year. She disclosed that the whole team of Dragon was very lovely. At first, she was a bit nervous but later she managed to get an investment for her business.
