PipeEasy makes it through Dragons’ Den

Manchester-based start-up pipeEasy has received a £41,000 investment after appearing on BBC Two’s Dragons’ Den.

The surfacing measuring tool allows users to precisely cut around difficult pipework, giving a clean circular finish rather than a conventional typical square cut finish.

Former floor-fitter, salesmen and founder of the company, Teirnan McCorkell, went into the Den hoping for a £41,000 investment in exchange for a 15% stake in the brand.

Newest Dragon Sara Davies was the only entrepreneur to make an offer, investing the full amount of money in exchange for 30% of the business.
