Martin Gould

In the wake of a  period of growth Huddersfield-based tech start-up yboo is set to appear on BBC’s Dragons’ Den.

The mobile comparison app will be trying to impress the Dragons, seeking a £250k investment for a 2.5% stake in the business. CEO and Founder Martyn Gould will face the famous Dragons, encouraging them to join yboo’s mission to create a better and more transparent marketplace for consumers.

Mr Gould said: “We’ve had an incredibly exciting year so far. Not only have we relocated offices to a larger premises in the centre of Huddersfield, helping us to attract new talent and work more collaboratively, launched our Insights Portal, partnering with major mobile operators to bring them insights into consumer behaviour, but we’ve also received investment from Australian technology accelerator Black Nova, their first partnership with a UK based business.

“Dragons’ Den provides us with a chance to pitch yboo to five of the UK’s leading investors, but also demonstrate to consumers exactly what our business is about. We can’t wait to see what people think and hear all the feedback once the episode has aired.”
