A headstrong entrepreneur turned down by Dragons' Den claims he has now been offered £90 million for his booming company.

Marco Hajikypri said he was so furious when the BBC2 show snubbed his health food business, Professional Gains, he told multi-millionaire Peter Jones he would regret his 'foolish' decision.

Mr Hajikypri claims the Dragons got it completely wrong when they valued his company at well below £2 million - and now claims he has turned down the £90m offer.

Marco, from Great Barr, Birmingham, told the Birmingham Mail : "It’s not worth that yet, but the potential investor – Coventry multi-millionaire Jojar Singh Dhinsa – has the vision to see what I could be making in a few years time. Unlike the Dragons."

The businessman had a rough ride on the show, rowing with the Dragons especially Deborah Meaden, who declared: "This is like arguing with cotton wool!"

He set up the business two years ago in a unit in West Bromwich, employing 20 people and preparing 7,000 healthy meals a week which are delivered to customers’ doors.

It has now expanded to three units and employs 33 people.

He went on Dragons’ Den last year asking for £125,000 for five per cent of the business but they sent him away without a penny.

Marco, 28, says: “The business is now valued at around £16 million, when the Dragons didn’t even think it was worth £2 million.

“I’ve certainly proved them wrong. I am glad they turned me down now, as I have done very well without their help.

"I didn’t want their money anyway, I just wanted their contacts, but I’ve worked hard to achieve success on my own.

“I have turned down the offer to buy the business, even at that huge figure, because I want to build it up myself. I think it’s going to be worth a BILLION pounds.

“That’s because of my multi-level marketing system which gives people the opportunity to earn money and eat for free.”

Marco says: “All you have to do is share the app with four people, who each get four people on board and so on.

“Within three months you will be eating for free and by month seven you should be earning a minimum of £5,277 a month.

“There’s no contract so you can cancel at any time and you don’t have to get other people involved if you don’t want to.”
