Investors Beware! A New Dragon Prowls The Den

BBC Two has announced today that serial entrepreneur and games designer Jervis Johnson will join the Dragons’ Den line-up for Series 18, on air later this summer.

Jervis has had first-hand experience of establishing and growing successful multi-million pound businesses, being instrumental in steering Games Workshop to becoming world leader in miniature and board games coupled with investing in diverse business portfolio including social media giant Facebook, discount supermarket Aldi and vintage lingerie brand What Katie Did. He will be adding his tactical insight and commercial knowledge to the den, hoping to slay the other Dragons and seize the next great business opportunities.
