On behalf of CBC’s hit television show DRAGONS’ DEN, the show’s producers will be holding open auditions looking for the next big ‘thing’ in Barrie on Saturday March 9, 2019
DRAGONS’ DEN gives aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their businesses to a panel of wealthy Canadian business moguls – the Dragons. Successful pitchers will have a chance to earn real investment – from the Dragons’ own pockets!
This is a fantastic opportunity for entrepreneurs and small business owners to come down and pitch their business concept for the chance to appear on national television. We would love to see as many people audition as we can!
I’ve attached a flyer which has more details. Additionally, please visit our website for a complete list of cities and dates, http://www.cbc.ca/dragonsden/

We’re hoping to have 2 of our experts there to talk to…. Ian McIntosh (GV35) who teaches the video class, and James Martin (GV46) Magic Cut Media & Promotion (who is currently doing the video profiles of the Women in Business Finalists).
We are also making an announcement that day about a new collaboration with another organization who is developing a communications channel for GVers!
