Sara Davies net worth: The craft empire of the Strictly Come Dancing and Dragons’ Den star is worth millions.
SARA DAVIES, a familiar face on TV screens thanks to her role as a dragon on Dragons’ Den, will be joining Strictly Come Dancing this year. What is her estimated net worth?
Sara Davies, 37, made her money by starting from the ground up and developing a handmade business. The astute businesswoman began her career while still a student at university in 2005, and has since gained notoriety thanks to appearances on the BBC show Dragons’ Den and, soon, Strictly Come Dancing.
Sara’s firm, Crafter’s Companion, is well-known among craft aficionados.
Knitting, macrame, and embroidery are all popular hobbies that have exploded in popularity in recent years.
Sara began her company at the opportune time, but how much money does she have?
She is worth a stunning £37 million, according to Insider Growth.
Sara was born in the northern English town of Coundon in the county of Durham in 1984.
She received a first-class degree in Business from the University of York.
During a work placement at a small craft company, the entrepreneur saw a need for a tool that could produce custom envelopes for handmade cards.
Sara developed The Enveloper with the support of her father, an engineer, and launched it on the TV shopping channel Ideal World.
Sara’s firm had grown to £500,000 in revenue by the time she graduated.
After a few years, Crafter’s Companion now exports to over 40 countries and employs over 200 people globally.
Crafter’s Companion was estimated to have made about £25 million in revenue the previous year in 2019.
Sara began her career in television in 2015, hosting the craft show Be Creative on Local Television Limited.
The businesswoman joined BBC’s Dragon’s Den as a Dragon in April 2019, making her the show’s youngest ever investment.
Sara told the BBC at the time, “I’ve been a fan of the show since the beginning.”
“I was even invited to pitch on the show 13 years ago, so I feel like I’ve completed the circle.”
Sara was awarded an MBE for her contributions to the British economy in the 2016 New Year Honours list.
The businesswoman was also honored with the Ernst & Young Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2010.
Deborah Meaden, Peter Jones, Touker Suleyman, and Tej Lalvani are among the Dragons’ Den cast members.
Sara maintains her personal life private most of the time, but she does share it on occasion. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
