Dragon’s Den is calling on all aspiring entrepreneurs to present their business pitches for a chance to be featured next season on CBC. Beginning in Toronto on February 10, auditions will be open to the public, as producers hit the road visiting Canadian cities coast-to-coast in search of the country’s best business ideas in need of a Dragon investment.
Auditions hit Prince George March 14 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Civic Centre.
The audition tour welcomes participants of all ages, with businesses at any stage of development.
Hopeful entrepreneurs should prepare to pitch their concept to the Dragon’s Den producers in five minutes or less. If they show the producers they have what it takes to pitch in the Den, they could be invited to Toronto to face the Dragons. Prospective pitchers are encouraged to apply online and bring a completed application form to the audition.
