The SA Florist Dragons Den story
From humble beginnings with a simple website for his mom's florist business, to securing one of the largest investments on the first season of Dragon’s Den South Africa, SA Florist is well on it's way to becoming South Africa’s leading Online gifting destination.

The Deal Behind The Deal: How SA Florist tamed their Dragon
In November 2014, founders Nick Wallander and Fraser Black competed against a number of start-ups to secure a R3.6 million investment on Dragon’s Den South Africa, with Vinny Lingham, a big-name technology investor, now living in Silicon Valley, leading the deal. Since securing the investment, SA Florist has grown from one full-time employee to six, recreated the site from front to back and focused on creating awesome customer experiences for the fast-growing base of regular clients. Local florists have been empowered once again and are creating beautiful, unique floral arrangements at competitive prices for local, national and international customers.

With the new SA Florist marketplace, customers can find unique and thoughtful gifts from real local florists and craft gifters, instead of having to pick from a dull national catalog of products produced on uninspired production lines and distributed meaninglessly from huge centralised warehouses.

Enter the Ventureburn 2015 Startup Survey and win!
Gadgets, prizes and startup goodie bag worth up to R170k on offer.

Ventureburn, in partnership with First National Bank (FNB) and investment advisory firm Clifftop Colony and analytics company Qurio, is proud to announce the launch of the Ventureburn Startup Survey.

The survey is looking to uncover the nuts and bolts of the startup sector: What are the major challenges facing the country’s entrepreneurs? What do South Africa’s startup founders look like? What sectors are startups more prevalent in? What types of funding are startups securing, and where are they getting their money from? Why are people flocking to startups to work there? Where is the most startup activity happening in South Africa?

So, if you are a South African technology-based startup, small business, SMME with annual revenues under R20m and/or staff numbers of anywhere from one to 50, we want to hear your story.

The data from the survey will form the basis of series of articles on Ventuerburn and will be distributed to wider media and associated tech conferences. We will also create a case study, an infographic and hold an event surrounding the release of the data to the country.

You can win too!

By completing the survey, you are guaranteed to win a Startup Goodie Bag to the value R4300. In addition to that, you stand the chance to win prizes to the value of R170 000*, including an iPad mini 16gb with wifi & cellular worth R7 799, courtesy of Digicape.
