An East Lothian serial entrepreneur is set to appear on next Thursday's Dragons' Den episode. 

Sheila Hogan, founder of the digital legacy vault company Biscuit Tin, faces the Dragons on Thursday, February 10's episode. 

The former President of the Association of Scottish Businesswomen launched her company in October 2020 following her own personal experience of losing her parents. 

The company gets its name from the old biscuit tin every family used to have for storing important documentation and has won Ms Hogan numerous awards including the 2020 Fintech and Cyber Security AccelerateHER Award.

The digital vault is designed to securely hold valuable information such as account details, important documents, post-life wishes and memories all in one convenient place. 

The Dunbar entrepreneur aims to plug a gap in the market and change how "end of life" planning is organised today.

Speaking about her appearance on Dragons' Den Sheila said: "[It] is a phenomenal experience; preparing and pitching to such a high-profile and massively successful group of businesspeople is daunting yet exhilarating.

"I have learnt so much due to the Dragons' Den experience and I am more ready than ever to take Biscuit Tin to the next level.”

The aim of the company is to help people prepare for their deaths and give family members some peace of mind and minimal stress, following their bereavement.
