The Products

Each team will need to begin by researching, designing and making some prototypes of their product. Once they have done this they will then need to gather enough feedback from potential customers through 'market research'. When they have agreed as a team their product range, and costed out what investment they need to manufacture the product they will need to put together their ideas and go to the 'Dragon's Den' to present their ideas and pitch for start-up funding.
