HASSRA Scotland Dragon's Den


Invitation is extended to all HASSRA members to prepare a pitch for consi­dera­tion by the HASSRA Dragons (a small team selected from each of the 5 sub-committees) The dragons den forms part of The Volunteers Event taking place on the Morning of Friday 20th March before the main AGM.

In the event there is a high volume of applications – a short list will be selected to attend the event.

The pitch is to put forward a new and innovative idea for a HASSRA Scotland Membership Benefit – or one off event – to the value of no more than £500.

The winner will be selected taking into account the following criteria;

  • Number of members likely to access this benefit
  • Innovation
  • Equality and Diversity


You will have 15 minutes to make your pitch and can use slides, visual aids etc if you wish – please bring relevant equipment to do this.

The panel will select a winner after all pitches have been heard.

You do not need to be a committee member – but you must be a HASSRA member. You can pitch as an individual or as part of a small team of not more than three.

Overnight accom­moda­tion may be approved for the evening of Thursday 19th March for those short-listed to present their pitch.

Entries with an outline of your pitch to be submitted to Jacky Sneddon by 14th February 2020.

If selected to attend – you are also cordially invited to stay for our AGM in the afternoon and our awards evening with dinner and dancing to our band. Overnight accom­moda­tion may be available on request for the evening of 20th March 2020 if you wish to attend.

So get your thinking caps on – someone will win on the day.
