Be Your Own Boss – BBC Three

BBC Three commissions a new high stakes entrepreneurial show with Richard Reed

The ultimate search for hot new business-blooded talent is on.

In “BE YOUR OWN BOSS”(working title) leading entrepreneur and co-founder of Innocent Drinks, Richard Reed, is on the hunt for the next generation of start-up superstars – and he’s got up to £1million to invest in the right people with the best ideas.

It took the faith and investment of one man to turn Richard and his friends’ idea into a multi-million-pound empire.  Now he wants to do the same for a new wave of young entrepreneurs, bringing passion, high stakes and opportunity to the cream of young British business talent.

The search is on for groups of friends with killer ideas, hungry for a shot at life-changing investment.

The series kicks off with an attention-grabbing test of entrepreneurial skill when Richard hands the 500 best applicants some cash to see just how easily they can turn a profit. Disregarding traditional elimination formats, Richard will draw on his own business philosophy to help determine who should have a chance at the kind of big money that turns business dreams into reality.

Richard Reed said: “Setting up and running innocent with my friends has been a life-enhancing adventure. That’s why I’m excited to be part of this new series giving others the chance to have the same experience, starting their own business and setting them up to become successful entrepreneurs.”
