We’re delighted to announce that the Wirral Wolves are back for 2021 and on the hunt for budding entrepreneurs.
Inspired by TV’s Dragon’s Den, Nik, Justine & their team are inviting people to pitch their fledgling businesses or ideas to them. In return for a stake in the company, they are willing to invest cash, the assets of their group and their own personal time & effort to exponentially boost the business.
Nik said “We’re really looking for businesses that will benefit strongly from myself & Justine’s experience, contacts & acumen rather than just a straight cash investment.” They are keen to find something they can enhance with their skill sets, adding value to a brand, in particular with digital expertise. Justine explained “Rather than simply investing, we like working with people who can benefit from our connections, business acumen & technology assets.” They site that the personality of the entrepreneur is extremely important to them. Nik said, “We want to see drive, a good work ethic, passion; someone who has the attitude & ethos, after all skills can be taught.”
They are looking to invest in passionate people from the Wirral & beyond, at any stage of their business journey, from the concept / idea stage through to businesses that have started trading and are looking for that catalyst to take them to the next level. It can be a unique idea, an emerging company, a clever invention, useful technology; they are open-minded provided it is something that they see potential in.
If & when a deal is struck, it will remain an unwritten agreement until all parties have completed their due diligence checks. It will also depend upon the open & honest discussions & commitment to making a deal happen. Depending on the deal, legal advisors may be required on one or both sides.
Having spent his formative years in hospitality & the motor industry, Nik has an esteemed reputation as a businessman for over two decades, often enhancing solid businesses with technology. He loves problem solving. Justine also has background in hospitality & digital. She brings a unique blend of creativity, an intense work ethic and out-of-the-box thinking to ‘wow’ clients. Together they have a formidable reputation in business on the Wirral.
In the first instance, we’d love to hear a little bit about you & your business – if you’d like to apply please fill in this form.
