September 7: Successful deal, broken deal

The first episode of "The Cave of the Lions" was a great success. The greens are resourceful, the lions are called. And that's how different deals arose in the show – one of them, the "Calligraphy Cut" by Frank Brorman, even more than a million euros. But not every handshake in the show leads to a real investment after the TV deal. "Volatiles", the exclusive LED mosaic wall, found an interested lion in the show with Carsten Maschmeyer, 59. After this, the deal broke more than 500,000 euros for 20 percent of the company's shares. Founders Florian Nuebling and Maschmeyer did not come together.

September 5: In episode 1 the lions surprised them with a mega-deal

On Tuesday "The Cave of the Lions" finally entered its fifth season. In the first episode, the lions immediately showed that they are extremely enthusiastic about the new founders – and have just completed a number of exciting deals. (One of them, the "Catch >> Up" has already tested GALA) At the end of the episode there was also the Big Bang. An absolute mega deal of more than 1,000,000 euros. If you can look forward to so much starting capital and which other products and ideas have been introduced, you can read here.

August 28: The lions are chatting out of the sewing box

In a few days (September 4, 2018) the popular inventor show returns to VOX and has a number of surprises in store. In the fifth season not only incredible 90 founders fight for an investment of the lions. Before the investors checked the market potential of the inventions on TV, they talked a bit out of the box.

All about season 5: What we know so far

In the late summer, the founder of VOX & # 39; The Cave of the Lions & # 39; a continuation, not a big news. VOX had announced a fifth season last year (November 2017). But that does not detract from the fact that the enthusiasm and anticipation of the show – which attracts attention this year with a number of changes – do not diminish:

More lions

Anyone who has followed the fourth season of the popular founder's show may know well informed about the occupancy of the investor chairs. So this year Frank Thelen, 42, Ralf Dümmel, 51, Carsten Maschmeyer, 59,
Dagmar Wohrl
, 64, and Judith Williams, 45, fight as "lions" for their share in the startup booty. The lions join as permanent investor. Ing. Georg Kofler, 61. The entrepreneur who was ready for the ill Judith Williams last season will share the spot with her.

Investor Frank Thelen takes a closer look at the product of the founders Karl Hartmann and Konstantin Altrichter.

Even more hungry

When the lions return in September, their hunger will be greater than ever. After a very successful fourth season, they will not be satisfied with meals for the hollow tooth: an average of 3 million viewers watched the episodes of last year. This brand must be supplemented.

You can also expect great things from the new season in financial terms. In the first four seasons of the founding show invested about 10 million eurosas the news portal "World" reports. The sum should now only be stopped in the recommended startups in season 5.

More startups

In early July, the newspaper "BILD" had speculated that the new season "The Cave of the Lions" could last longer than the previous editions. For the previous season only twelve days of shooting were planned, because the upcoming shot should have been made on 15 days. This is not true. As with season 4, the products of the founders will also be shown in 12 episodes in the fifth season. There will, however, be more startups: 90 in number. So 20 more products are hoping for a financial injection from the investors.

New cave

For the new episodes the lions have moved to a new studio. The investors welcome the start-up founders this time for a skyscraper background.

At any time and for everyone

"The Cave of the Lions" will be available in the next season as well as in repetition and with subtitles. The station announced in a press release. According to the news channel, n-TV shows the current DHDL episode of Tuesday as a repeat on Friday at 8:15 PM. There is also the possibility for hearing-impaired viewers to see "The Cave of the Lions" with subtitles.

And for those who can not get enough of the format, there is also a founder's magazine to start season 5. The magazine of Gruner + Jahr contains stories about startups from the new and the previous season and other successful entrepreneurs. & # 39;

The successful concept of the broadcast

The entertainment show is about investing. Inventors and founders of companies use their pitches (presentations) to promote the capital of the judges. The better the idea, the greater the chance that one or more "lions" will bite.

Whether investors such as Frank Thelen, Judith Williams or Ralf Dümmel offer financial support to entrepreneurs does not only depend on the presentation of their products and ideas. The investment proposals of the candidates are decisive. Many deals are and are already on this point. If a business valuation is too high or margins have been misjudged, the lions withdraw from the investment. Only when the parameters are good do the potential donors consult and try to find out whether an investment is worthwhile.

They often present a counter-offer. For their part, the lions have the opportunity to explain under what conditions they would agree to enter the company. If candidates and lenders agree on the deal, the field will eventually be sealed with a handshake.
