Five entrepreneurs were put to the test by students at Banbury and Bicester College in a Dragons’ Den-style event.

Ned Snogard, or Dragons’ Den in reverse, saw experts pitch a new idea to more than 100 students last month, with Ken Norman of Brethertons winning the event with an iPhone app which turns the phone into a mini breathalyser.

Rose Turner, principal of Banbury and Bicester College, said: “Today’s young people are likely to need entrepreneurial skills and characteristics to help them succeed in an ever changing jobs market.

“Initiatives such as Ned Snogard help to bring students into contact with those who have already started out on their careers and who have valuable experience and expertise to share.

“This was a real master class.”
