What no Norah, etc?

That was Den.

This is NOW.

I work on the digital side of Dragons’ Den with All About Business. You may have seen a tearful Jason O’Reilly of Pride Watches on the show last night. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and the tears almost come again in this post-episode interview which has just gone live on AllAboutBusiness.ie. Which might be of interest to your readers.
