Sustainable Beachwear brand Randy Cow secures two investments in business TV programme

On the 22nd February Surrey-based founder of Randy Cow, Dave Weller stepped into the famous Den. Dave stepped out with big-hitters Peter Jones and Touker Suleyman both offering investment in the quirky brand. Peter Jones was first to make an offer, suggesting that it would be a journey best taken with both him and Touker Suleyman, together. Dave countered and finally hands were shook.

Dave explains, “It was a bit of a whirlwind experience from the beginning,through to filming. The Dragons aren’t called Dragons for no reason! They definitely put me through my paces during the experience, and at one point I thought we were not going to get the slightest hint of interest. But out of nowhere I suddenly had two offers from the 2 men which I had hoped to get interest from.”

And on the experience overall, Dave says, “Looking back it was a fun, but definitely stressful experience. The Dragons all have such different personalities and angles of questioning - and there was a lot of crossfire! But behind it all I did get the sense they do wish you the best.”

Following the show Dave is excited for the journey ahead, “It remains to be seen what happens next for Randy Cow, but I’m certainly excited to now have a ‘Dragon Approved’ brand.”
