We visited the UK to film an episode of the Dragons' Den recently. For those of you in the US, this is the original UK version of the Sharks' Tank. Due to our UK business partner we were eligible for the show and decided to go for it. We were fortunate to be chosen and here's our pitch which includes the founder of Torch Apparel, Nathan Wills and the President of Torch Europe, Hugh Roper. We won't tell you the outcome, you'll just have to watch and see.
Torch Europe had a successful trip to the new Facebook offices in London.
Torch were among several companies presenting our business to Seedrs investors.
The great news is that we have smashed our European fund raise target, and those that saw the T1 - wanted one!
We will soon be closing this round of funding, so if you are considering being part of our journey - we would love to have you on board! www.seedrs.comhttp://www.seedrs.com/startups/torch-apparel-europe
Welcome to our new European website that we have launched to coincide with our debut TV appearance on Dragons Den, and fund raising campaign on Seedrs. Please take a look around, and provide us feedback. We would love you to review our Seedrs pitch - which allows you to become a shareholder in our business! It is an exciting time for us here at Torch, and we welcome the opportunity to invite you to come on board!

It has been a long and arduous journey from launching Kickstarter to finally shipping all 1,300 pre-orders. We have learned so much along the way and have had the opportunity to work with some great people. New products are already in the works, including our FLUX backpack that we've been trying to perfect and have finally resolved all of the issues through testing.
