Steve successfully secured £40k from Crafting Queen and Dragons’ Den investor Sara Davies in exchange for 30% of his business.

In an interview, Victor shared his experience at the Dragons’ Den. He stated, “I have several years of experience in public speaking and pitching my business, still entering the Den was quite nerve-wracking.
