Inventor secures Dragons Den Investment
Manchester-based start-up, pipeEasy Limited, has received a £41,000 investment after appearing on BBC Two’s Dragons’ Den.
Former floor-fitter/salesmen and founder of pipeEasy Limited, Teirnan McCorkell, went into the Den hoping for a £41,000 investment in exchange for a 15% stake in the business and his patent-pending product.
The inventor showed the Dragonsprototypes of his surfacing measuring tool and explained how the money would be spent on producing the tools for the DIY and trade markets.
Newest Dragon, Sara Davies was the only entrepreneur to make an offer. Sara proposed to invest the full amount of money in exchange for 30% of the business, which Teirnan accepted.
