Episode two of Dragons’ Den SA will be hitting your screens at 19:00 tonight on Mzansi Magic, with five entrepreneurs opening themselves up to recognition or rejection from the Dragons. The five will put their best pitch foot forward, although one pitcher looks like he came straight from a Tupperware party.

Business is tough, the real world isn’t kind and Dragons’ Den SA serves as a stern reminder. What is apparent is that South Africa is producing smart entrepreneurs with bright ideas, loads of potential and die-hard attitudes. Once in the den, you get to see much of what South Africa's talent have to offer; whether it’s brilliant, banal or downright mad.

Seeing what business ideas are out there is part of the fun, but the Dragons’ tough questions bring expectant pitchers down to earth without a parachute, and boy is this apparent in episode 2. We promise you tension, tough decision-making and some fantastic “are you for real?” moments.

What’s evident in episode 2 is that Dragons have more than just a cash injection to offer successful pitchers; they have a network of important contacts in high places and invaluable business acumen to launch a business with the best chance of success. Don’t miss Polo Radebe, Vinny Lingham, Vusi Thembekwayo, Gil Oved and Lebo Gunguluza deliver advice, criticism and cash in true Dragon style.
