Wallasey-based BFS, which offers short-term funding to property developers and investors, has agreed to sponsor Property Elevator, that will be broadcast on Sky Property TV
Specialist Wirral proper lender Bridging Finance Solutions (BFS) is to sponsor a new Dragons’ Den-style programme on Sky TV that will be aired this month.
Wallasey-based BFS, which offers short-term funding to property developers and investors, has agreed to sponsor Property Elevator, that will be broadcast on Sky Property TV.
As part of the agreement, the firm will provide funding to would-be developers who have survived and thrived in front of a panel of seasoned property experts. Five shows will go out on the channel in February.
John Hardman, head of sales at BFS, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be involved in the pilot of Property Elevator. The concept is a tried and tested one that I feel will work incredibly well in the property arena.
“Our role is to provide bridging funding to the developer who finds success following their time/grilling in front of the taskmasters/panel and their project considered a viable one.”
The programme is the brainchild of author and property developer, John Howard, who has worked closely with the team at BFS for many years. He explained: “I’ve been working on the development of this project for some time.
“I’ve always admired the Dragons Den programme and recognised the potential synergies this could have with the property sector. It’s fantastic to see this taken on by Sky who have shown huge enthusiasm for the concept and we’re now keen to press ahead with production later this month.”
Developers will present their ideas during each show to a panel made up of two northern and two southern property professionals.
