    How that should've gone down...

    ROSS:"Since we've launched we've made... a little bit over 30,000 dollars."
    "In what period of time?"
    ROSS:"ONE DAY! BLACK HAT, FOOLZ!!!!!11 :D"
    "**** YEAH SPONSOR THIS DUDE NOW!"

    ...

    For real, I'm pretty sure some of you here are making $xx,xxx per day. Maybe the guy in the video forget that he was talking to billionaires.....

    He truly believed he had something incredibly there. $15,000/year revenue and he thought this was worth 300,000 or something. I wonder if the big guy is a member here.

    this guy is funny when he said It takes a while to build a revenue? 2 years for $30K that's bad.... I liked how convinced he was about the quality and profit of the website.
    btw. It's for sale now

    We have similar show here in Estonia. I think this kind of shows are for searching out good and profitable ideas. After finding out great ideas "Dragons" will invest into them and makes even more fortune in future. TV show is just epic twist to make even more fortune. Just thoughts...:rolleyes:

    November 2008 -
    Local newspaper website with total revenue over 2 years of $30K wants DragonsDen moguls to invest $150K in their business for 30% of the company.
    Investors - "We pass."
    Entrepeneur - "I have all the respect for the dragons in the world. But I think in this case they're lacking what I like call vision. Dragons... you missed out. What more can I say."

    February 2010 -
    Posted on their website -
    This website for sale - domain and/or content -- the whole shooting match


    LOL, yeah that is pretty epic.

    They didn't even have a good knowledge of who their competition was when the investors asked the questions. Another example of people from offline businesses that thinks internet business operate on the same type of timetables as traditional business. They had been online for two years and was still presenting themselves as a new start-up company in it's infancy.

    If you want to see more interesting website businesses (and LOLs) from the same show, be sure to check these out!!

    Dragon's Den - Traveling Acquaintances
    Dragon's Den - AgriConnect (FAIL)
    Dragon's Den - GrubCanada (SUCCESS)
    Dragon's Den - Teambuy (SUCCESS)


    Maybe a higher ranked member can post the videos for these because I am restricted and I can't.

    Wow, Teambuy did it pretty good. That's the reason behind this site which is advertised all over the place in Germany, almost same idea, just only with Pizza's. They do well now.

    Traveling Acquaintances was also a good laugh :D

    This other thread about the guy who invested 100.000$ in this crap selling real estate site, which still isn't live after 3 years of development, looks like a perfect fail for this show :D

    I know right.. I was wondering the same thing!

    It's quite amazing they thought they could get $130k for that site, with $41 a day in revenue. LOL.

    Noobs.
