Janani Prabhakaran, a visionary entrepreneur from Edinburgh, is ready to take on the challenge in the 2024 BBC series of Dragons’ Den with her innovative business, Unbaggaged. Originating from India and a proud graduate of the University of Strathclyde in Business, Janani has gained notable recognition across the industry.
Unbaggaged: A New Era in Luggage Storage
Established in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Manchester, and with imminent plans to expand into Birmingham and London, Unbaggaged offers a unique and hassle-free luggage storage solution. The service allows travelers to have their luggage picked up from any location, securely stored, and then dropped off to them wherever they like in the city – freeing them to explore cities without the burden of their bags. This innovative concept was conceived from Janani’s personal travel challenges and her desire to improve the travel experience for others.
“My frustrating experience of dragging luggage around and losing precious holiday time in London and not being able to find closeby luggage storage inspired Unbaggaged. This struggle sparked a vision to transform travel, making it seamless for others.”
Janani’s Ambition and Dragons’ Den Experience
Reflecting on her upcoming appearance on Dragons’ Den, Janani shared her excitement: “Being on Dragons’ Den is more than just seeking investment; it’s about showcasing Unbaggaged’s role in transforming travel. We aim to redefine urban travel, offering convenience and peace of mind to our customers.”
