Summary

Review

In a sweet spot between Dragons’ Den and The Apprentice, this likeable business series follows charismatic venture capitalist Eric Collins as he dishes out tough love and – if it works – cash to entrepreneurs.

Collins is great: he doesn’t bully anyone, but he doesn’t sugar-coat things either, delivering hard home truths about margins and growth as he tries to take a Manchester property repairs company from busy but barely profitable to a point where he might invest.

Running that company is Jason, who, we gather, has been through a lot to get to where he is and doesn’t exactly bite Eric’s hand off. But his motto is “JFDI” – short for Just Do It, with added emphasis.
