Audition for Dragon's Den

The popular CBC television show Dragons' Den will hold open auditions in Kelowna this spring.

The show, which gives aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their businesses to a panel of wealthy Canadian business moguls, will be in the Okanagan March 4, at the Kelowna campus of Okanagan College.

Entrepreneurs will be fighting for a spot on the show's 10th season and will have a chance to catch the attention of producers, potentially leading to investment from the show's "dragons."

Small businesses are invited to come down and pitch their concepts for the chance to appear on national television. 

The cross-country auditions began Feb. 7 in Toronto. Upcoming B.C. stops include:

  • March 2 – Prince George 
  • March 4 – Kelowna 
  • March 6 – Abbotsford 
  • March 7 – Vancouver

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 producers in five minutes or less. If they show 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.
