Galway entrepreneur enters Dragon’s Den

Next Sunday’s episode of the Dragon’s Den will see Galway entrepreneur Tara Dalrymple bravely pitch her website Mission Possible, an online peer to peer outsourcing website for social and corporate tasks.

The episode which airs on RTÉ One at 9.30pm will see Ms Dalrymple look for €60,000 in exchange for 10 per cent of her business, Mission Possible. Dragon BarryO’Sullivan questions how Ms Dalrymple’s business is different from Google Helps Out and Task Rabbit, two huge tech companies offering similar services that are successful on a global scale, and expresses concern that Mission Possible will not work globally.

Admitting that there are no real differences between what she is offering versus what is already successful in a hugely competitive market, suddenly makes it a very difficult pitch for Ms Dalrymple, despite saying her USP is that the business is local.
