Inventor 'takes positives' from show
Scots inventor defies Dragons as sales flood in
Alison Grieve in the Dragons’ Den
A Scottish entrepreneur and inventor who entered the BBC’s Dragons’ Den tonight has joined the ranks of success stories that got away.
Edinburgh-based Alison Grieve’s ergonomic holder for mobile devices was rejected by the Dragons, but since filming she has watched the sales flood in.
The G-Hold has so far brought in revenue of £150,000, double the amount she had looked to raise in the Den.
Ms Grieve’s company has scaled up rapidly, moving to larger premises and increasing its assembly team, based in Scotland, to produce the 10,000 G-Holds required monthly to meet demand.
