Calling entrepreneurs: Dragons Den coming back to Okanagan

Popular TV show is looking for entrepreneurs with great ideas to hear pitches

Sharpen up your business skills, the Dragons are coming back to Kelowna.

The CBC TV show featuring aspiring entrepreneurs pitching their ideas will hold auditions in Kelowna on March 8 as part of a cross Canada tour.

Kelowna is the only Okanagan Valley city where producers will look for new business ideas that may catch their eye and make it onto the small screen next season on CBC.

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 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.
