It’s time for aspiring entrepreneurs from across the country to put their pitches to the test, as they fight to be a part of DRAGONS’ DEN’s landmark 10th season! Next month producers will hit the road, visiting cities from coast to coast in a quest to find Canada’s next great batch of entrepreneurs.
The audition tour is open to the public and launches in Toronto in the CBC atrium (25 John Street) on Feb. 7.
The audition tour welcomes participants of all ages, with businesses at any stage of development. Aspiring entrepreneurs should be prepared to pitch their concept to the DRAGONS’ 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.
Online auditions begin this month and continue in-person throughout February and March across the country. Producers will be on the lookout for entrepreneurs in Abbotsford on March 6.
