#51 - Deborah Meaden

Deborah Meaden is a British businesswoman and TV personality who ran a family holiday business, before completing a management buyout, but is now best known for her appearances on the BBC Two business programme Dragons' Den.



Deborah took over from Rachel Elnaugh in the third series in August 2006. Like Rachel, Deborah was the only female investor, although this changed in subsequent seasons with the arrival of Hilary Devey to replace James Caan. As of 2021, she has agreed to investments through this route in 63 businesses to the value of over £3.3m.
