Last Sunday October 8th viewers sat gasping as entrepreneur Hannah Gourlay delivered an extraordinary pitch with her business of costume tails in attempt to win investment from the panel of Dragons.
TellTails were intent on making a scene and promoting every viewer at home to ‘Claim back their tails – Tails which have been so mercilessly robbed from us through evolution.’
Budding entrepreneur, Hannah Gourlay from Hackney had just three minutes to win them over.
As TellTails entered the Den, the judges jaws dropped as three creatures prowled onstage; one sporting a fox tail, a swooshing dinosaur and a rather pregnant naughty squirrel, flaunting their tails and wiggling their bottoms at the judges.
Following was young entrepreneur from Hannah dressed in a top hat, monkey tail and a rather mischievous smile from ear to ear.
After what can only be described as an unusual pitch, she invited the dragons to ‘try one on for themselves’.
The dragons remained in their tails for the rest of the pitch, leaving viewers blinking at the television…Had the whole show gone berserk?!
Three dragons revealed offers.
New dragons Tej Lalvani and Touker Suleymn joined forces in their bid whilst Deborah came with a bid of her own.
Overwhelmed and clearly bouncing inside, Hannah held a cool exterior quizzing the judges on their offers.
After returning, Hannah accepted Deborah Meadon’s offer.
‘Deborah had that knowing glint in her eye. She instantly bonded with her tail. I could see she shared our vision to grow the company into a successful, long standing, global business,’
