Students show their entrepreneurial prowess in 'Dulwich Dragon's Den'

Dulwich Dragon's Den

On Thursday, Head of Senior School, Mr Wilsonlock was delighted to be a judge at Dulwich College Suzhou's very own Year 9 'Dragon’s Den' (Shark Tank in Australia/USA). Student teams devised their own ideas to present for ‘investment’.  He was joined on the judging panel with Marc Flynn (Musician and Apple Store Suzhou Leader) and Leila (Entrepreneur and former NASA engineer). Students had been preparing their ideas and presentations with the event in mind. The judges were fascinated to hear and see great presentations that used the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a starting point.  One of the biggest investments by the 'Dragons' on the day was for 250,000 ‘DC Dollars’ towards an enterprise that promoted the use of cutlery made from biodegradable corn starch. Having seen nearly twenty presentations, it is evident that our students take the UN SDG's very seriously and are willing to invest heavily in their futures.

Please enjoy the video below which gives you a taste of the hard work which the students' put in to the project.
