Tiger Mobiles, a smart phone comparison site rejected for a slot on the Dragon’s Den reality BBC2 TV series by the producers in 2008 have revealed that 76 (half) of the 153 companies over 11 series that were pledged money by the top entrepreneurs never saw a penny of it, and that only £5.8 million of the £13 million pledged was ever actually invested by the “dragons”.

According to Tiger Mobiles the BBC produce the show as a contrived affair that puts viewer entertainment above genuine business success.
