It’s time for entrepreneurs across Canada to polish their pitches to be part of Dragons’ Den’s 11th season on CBC.
This February, producers will hit the road on a 33-city audition tour to find the country’s best businesses in need of a Dragon investment.
Auditions will be open to the public and kick-off in Toronto on Febuary 6th in the Barbara Frum Atrium at CBC’s Toronto headquarters.
All audition dates and cities are listed below, and venues are listed online. Tour dates will continue to be updated through the Dragons’ Den website.
The audition tour will welcome participants of all ages, with businesses at any stage of development. Aspiring entrepreneurs should prepare 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 are open now and will continue in-person throughout February, March and April across the country. Producers will be on the lookout for entrepreneurs in the following cities:
