Schoolboy negotiator to Dragon’s Den success story

Jordan Daykin is the CEO of Gripit, a £20million business that he started with his grandad when he was 13. Jordan successfully secured investment from Deborah Meaden on Dragon’s Den when he was 19, making him the youngest person ever to do so.

In this podcast we discuss how leaving home and school very early forces independent and resourceful behaviour, the teachers and family members who believed in him and what they said, and how raising a 1 year old is more difficult than running a 50-person business!
