Dragons Den

CBC show Dragons’ Den, which gives aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their businesses to a panel of Canadian business moguls, is holding open auditions across the country for its fifteenth season.

Notable Dragons include Michele Romanow and Arlene Dickinson.

The audition tour is open to participants of all ages with businesses at any stage of development. Entrepreneurs should prepare to pitch a concept to the Dragons’ Den producers in five minutes or less. Auditions are not mandatory to be on the show, but are highly encouraged.

If entrepreneurs show the producers they have what it takes to pitch in the Den, they could be invited to face the Dragons in Toronto. Auditions will be held in 21 cities across Canada. Notable Dragons include Clearbanc co-founder and president Michele Romanow, and CEO of District Ventures Arlene Dickinson.
