Two TY students from Desmond College have made it through to the All Ireland Final of Junior Dragons’ Den to be shown on RTE in the new year. Desmond College is one of only 18 schools nationwide who have been chosen from hundreds who entered regional rounds over the last few weeks.
The competition run by RTE and Bank of Ireland went looking for young entrepreneurs from schools across Ireland to take part in the Junior Dragons’ Den. This search for some of the brightest minds in Irish secondary led them to two Desmond College students Steven Brosnan and Tom Flavin both in Transition year.
The boys, who have made a new screen wash for cars called F21-D, will get to pitch in front of the Dragons while being recorded by RTE for episode 9 and 10 of the very popular Dragons’ Den which is now onto series 5 and will be aired in April 2013.
Desmond College students won a prize in Fairtrade Christmas Card Competition 2012.
