CotiVision™ co-founders Julie Hawkins and Nancy Gries step out to face the Dragons

Julie and Nancy are no strangers to pitching in front of potential customers, and still after endless hours of rehearsing and reviewing of figures, the anxiety of facing five of the most successful, formidable and potentially intimidating business people in the country is a tough challenge for just about anyone.

But when the duo took to the lift and walked into the Den, they used their experience and skills to sell themselves and their business idea to the forbidding multimillionaire investors Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden, Touker Suleyman, Tej Lalvani and Sara Davies. Like most best-laid plans, their pitch did not quite go to script, but it was executed calmly and professionally.

Their pitch can be seen on BBC One on the 22 April 2021. Don’t miss seeing them in action and find out if they managed to Raise their Glasses with the Dragons!

Notes for editors:

Created from the frustration and realisation that whenever most needed, reading glasses are nowhere to be found! COTI VISION makes wearing reading glasses stylish, sophisticated and always at your fingertips.

Reading glasses are not usually a permanent feature and are continuously taken on and off.  When out for an evening they are usually needed for reading a menu and seeing messages on your phone. The rest of the time they are usually hidden in a handbag or perched on top of the head. So why not make them into a fashionable necklace? This way when not adorning the face they are conveniently hanging from the neck. 

Of course, there is still a place for the traditional readers, but on a night out when looks matter, this result is far more stylish and sophisticated. The necklace can be detached from the frame and worn independently. Available in an array of colours, in powers: +1.00 to +2.50
