Young Castleisland entrepreneur to appear on Junior Dragons' Den
AN enterprising Castleisland student is set for an appearance on RTE's Junior Dragons with a product he designed to help people deal with tangled wiring.
Christian Steinborn (16) will appear on a special edition of Junior Dragons Den this Sunday night when he'll be showing off the Easy Coil, a device he came with while faced with the annual problem of disentangling the Christmas lights.
Christian's product is a storage system for wire products that are prone to tangling. Since coming up with the idea he has created three different devices for different types of wiring. One is for Christmas lights, another one, the easy coil agri, can be used for storing electric fencing, and the third is for general use.
Dragon Peter Casey was very impressed with the product and was full of praise for the inventive young Kerry entrepreneur.
"These sorts of products annoy me because I go 'why didn't I think of that?' It's so simple. You're an entrepreneur. You've got what it takes to be very successful in business," he said.
