Dragons’ Den business roadshow hits Scotland

The new series of BBC’s Dragons’ Den has got underway and to inspire a whole new generation of entrepreneurs one of the most successful business on the show tells its success story to Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Razzamataz Theatre Schools gained national recognition when Managing Director and Founder Denise Hutton-Gosney entered the show with some energetic students who performed the Razz jingle.

“As a successful businessman, I instinctively recognise an excellent opportunity,” said Duncan Bannatyne. “That’s why I chose to invest in Razzamataz Theatre Schools. The commitment, enthusiasm and sound business sense of the team, coupled with their proven track record of success led me to become part of the business.”

Since appearing on the show, the business has boomed with now almost 40 franchise schools up and down the country, and according to The Stage newspaper, is one of the top five part-time theatre schools in the UK. The franchise business has been a popular choice for a wide range of people, from mums who want an exciting career to fit around their children, to young entrepreneurs with the dedication to succeed in business, because the beauty is that Razzamataz gives you all the support you need to strike out on your own. What you MUST have is a passion for the performing arts and the dedication to work with children and young people.
