Just ten years ago, Dragons’ Den investor Steven Bartlett tried to pitch on the show.

MILLIONAIRE Steven Bartlett, a member of the Dragons’ Den investor panel, will make his first appearance in the lair tonight.

Mr. Bartlett, who is 28 years old, is the show’s youngest investor and the youngest investor to ever appear on the Dragons’ Den panel.

The entrepreneur, podcast host, investor, and music fan shared his journey from a university dropout to a £900,000 podcast and a net worth of £50 million.

Mr. Bartlett will make his first appearance on television tonight, joining Deborah Meaden, Sara Davies, and Touker Suleyman.

Tej Lalvani, the CEO of Vitabiotics, has invested nearly £2 million over the course of his four-year appearance on the show, and is being replaced by the millennial entrepreneur.

Mr Bartlett revealed in a shocking Tweet that he applied to Dragons’ Den as an entrepreneur ten years ago but never made it to the show.

“I applied to pitch to the Dragons when I was 18 years old,” he tweeted.

I now have the privilege of sitting among them, ten years later, at the age of 28.”

Mr. Bartlett has also stated that appearing on the show will fulfill a childhood dream.

He told BBC News that as a 12-year-old, he would pretend to be one of the investors while watching the show, pausing after each pitch to consider whether he would invest his money.

After being born in Zimbabwe, the entrepreneur extraordinaire was raised in Plymouth and began his university studies at Manchester Metropolitan University.

He dropped out of school to work as a freelance consultant for the social network Bebo, and later that year co-founded the unicorn company Social Chain.

Mr Bartlett co-founded Social Chain in 2014 with Dominic McGregor and has since grown the company to a value of £300 million.

Both founders left in 2020, with Mr Bartlett joining Huel as a director and devoting himself fully to his podcast Diary of a CEO for the first time.

The podcast interviews successful people from all walks of life in order to give the average person a behind-the-scenes look at how they work and the secrets to their success.

The podcast had been on the air for three years with only sporadic episodes and little success.
