Dragon’s Den, Write Size goes from strength to strength


Since appearing on Dragon’s Den in July 2016, Black Country based business Write Size, have gone from strength to strength. The original episode, which aired again on Sunday (21st May 2017) was a priceless catalyst for the product’s launch and spring boarded their business into the public eye.  

 

Write Size aim to help change the way children learn to write, through their ergonomically developed pencils, designed and scaled to fit children’s’ hands.

 

Write Size MD Ross Williams had this to say, “Our appearance on Dragons Den seems so long ago and so much has happened since that I only wish we could pitch them again with the evidence we have now. I suspect the outcome may well have been very different.”

 

Since appearing on the show and applying the Dragons’ feedback, Write Size pencils have been independently tested within the market. Early reports suggest 97% of children using the pencils have more control and thus a faster writing speed and accuracy. Write Size products have received an incredible amount of support from parents, bloggers, occupational therapists and teachers, praising their innovative pencils.

 

Write Size have now secured a manufacturer to produce and distribute their products in America. As well as distributors and sellers in Asia, Ireland, Malta, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and South Africa. 

 

It is no surprise they hold two awards from The Black Country Chamber of Commerce, having won Best New Business and Runner-Up for Exporter of The Year in 2016.

 

Write Size did not secure a Dragon investment last July, but came away with invaluable feedback and advice. Which ten months on has served them incredibly well, to find out more about Write Size see their website, www.writesize.co.uk.
