 There’s no doubt that Dragon’s Den makes for compulsive viewing. We never tire of watching the hopeful entrepreneurs enter the room with their life changing idea, only to have it crushed by the Dragons. Well excitement rules today as the BBC announced today the identities of two new Dragons who will preside over an online-only version of BBC Two’s Dragons’ Den.

Shaf Rasul and Julie Meyer, two highly successful entrepreneurs, will give Britain’s budding business men and women the chance to secure up to £50,000 of investment for their ideas. Now anyone can approach the Dragons with their must-have product or business idea can visit bbc.co.uk/dragonsden to apply.

So who’s going to be the host of this online version I hear you ask? Well it’s Dominic Byrne, (newsreader from The Chris Moyles Show). So what do we know about these new Dragons. Well Julie Meyer is known for supporting internet and technology entrepreneurs over the past ten years in the UK, having helped UK hits like lastminute.com and WGSN secure funding. She has backed many growing tech and media firms including SpinVox, Monitise, SliceThePie and Zopa.

While Shaf Rasul established optical-media distribution company, E-Net Computers Limited, in 2000 and it is now the largest storage media distributor in Europe and one of the biggest buyers of optical storage products in the world.
