Exhibition display equipment gets Dragon's Den investment

4th August 2010

Creators of a unique digital graffiti wall called YrWall have secured funding from two Dragon's Den stars.

Deborah Meaden and Peter Jones have both invested in the unique exhibition display equipment, with both Dragons coming away with a 20 per cent share of the company for a £25,000 investment.

YrWall, an interactive drawing tool for creating digital graffiti on a large screen using a modified spray paint can, has proved popular at events, including exhibitions and gigs, since being launched in 2009, according to creators Tim Williams and Tom Hogan, who set up parent company Lumacoustics.

Mr Williams said: "Demand for YrWall is growing, particularly amongst the event market but with the expertise of Dragons Deborah Meaden and Peter Jones, we can take our technology and ideas to the mass market. An incredibly exciting time for the company, even though securing the funding on Dragons Den was one of the most terrifying experiences of our lives!"

The device will be showcased at Hub 2010, which is the UK's trade event for the whole of the boardsports business.

It takes place from August 10th to the 11th in Bristol.
