The Expandables. Their pitch advised a local vegetarian shoe company on the best approach to expanding internationally.

Students are given case studies and local organisations to work with to develop proposals for expansion into new markets or new products.

Teams are then required to put together a pitch outlining their business idea, financial forecasts and marketing strategies.

The Dragon’s then feedback to students on their pitch helping them to develop their presentation, teamworking and market/business analysis skills.
