Since 2006, Deborah Meaden has been a Dragon on BBC’s Dragons’ Den.
The businesswoman is often a budding entrepreneurs’ first choice on the show. And over her time on Dragons’ Den Deborah has invested almost £4m.
Deborah comes off as one of the more approachable Dragons on the show but, get your facts wrong or come off arrogant and Deborah doesn’t seem so nice.
Episode 4 of the 2019 series saw Michelle Turnbull present her Barking Bakery to the Dragons. But once Michelle got her facts wrong, Deborah was well and truly ‘out’.
Let’s take a look at Deborah Meaden’s net worth in 2019.
What companies does Deborah run?
It’s well-known on Dragons’ Den that Deborah has made her cash mainly from the travel industry.
But more specifically, she joined her family’s business Weststar Holidays in 1992 and went on to become a majority shareholder. In 2007, the company was sold and Deborah had a £19m stake in the company.
Today, Deborah is a majority shareholder in Fox Brothers & Co, a company based in Wellington, Somerset, that produces cloth. She also launched The Merchant Fox website in 2011. The Merchant Fox is the retail side of Fox Brothers & Co, they “offer a broad range of stylish gentlemen’s accessories, interior pieces and bespoke services”.
