Daddy’s Dragons (South Africa)
Short Business Description: Founders: Jody Aufrigtig , Nick Ferguson, BArry Harlen, Paul Dalton
Long Business Description:

The Daddy's Dragons brings you a Business School and Incubator.  Business incubation has been around a long time but in recent times these are springing up all over the place, answering to a real need for small business support. These start-up hubs offer expert mentorship, resources like office space, management and skills transfer and even seed money, typically in exchange for an equity partnership in small (or theoretical) companies. It’s far better to have a smaller share in a huge success, than complete ownership in something small and your chances of success are greatly increased when you associate with the Dragons. More importantly, early-stage investors are paying close attention too.
