Nimble cleans up on Dragons’ Den

Plant-based family-friendly cleaning brand Nimble has cleaned up on BBC flagship show Dragons’ Den, securing a dignificant investment from three of the Dragons.

Von Sy, founder of the brand, appeared on the show on Sunday 8 March, where he scored a hat trick, securing investment from three of the Dragons, to the value of £85,000.

Having spent more than ten years working within one of the world’s largest consumer household cleaning product manufacturers, London-based scientist Von developed an effective plant-based cleaning range that was safer to use around babies and children, with no harsh chemicals.

Impressed by the brand’s proposition, the Dragons were keen to know more about Nimble.

Despite getting himself in a sticky situation at one point, Von  negotiated with the Dragons and is delighted to have secured investment from all three.

He will now be working with Tej Lalvani, Sara Davies and Touker Suleyman, after giving 45% of his business to the Dragons, for their £85,000 investment.

“Dragons’ Den is by far the toughest thing I have done for the brand, but also the most rewarding,” commented Von. “To have secured financial support from three truly brilliant business experts was just amazing and I am excited to see where the business will go with their guidance and knowledge.”

Since the filming in April 2019, Nimble has expanded its presence internationally and secured shelf space in leading high street retailers Boots and Sainsbury’s.
