GUILDFORD’S version of  BBC2’s  Dragons’ Den came to the University of Surrey last week for the the most anticipated event of Enterprise week, the national initiative aimed at promoting entrepreneurial skills among young people.

Organised by the Surrey Chambers of Commerce, The Institute of Directors and the University of Surrey, The Angel’s Lair attracted an impressive turnout of 200 delegates to the University of Surrey School of Management Lecture Theatre to see three local business proposals critiques by an investment expert panel.
