Pitch the Dragons

Calling all aspiring entrepreneurs – or at least those who dare to face the dragons.

Dragon's Den is holding its 2017 auditions, and Kelowna is on the list of locations where the show will be scouting for those who deserve an investment.

"The audition tour welcomes participants of all ages, with businesses at any stage of development," says a statement. 

"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."

Auditions will be held in Kelowna on March 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Okanagan's College's Kelowna campus on KLO Road  in the Centre For Learning - E building.

This is the show's 12th season.

Last season, a Kelowna company landed an investment on the show. 

Nooks Design asked for a $100,000 investment in exchange for 15 per cent of the company. They had four dragons interested in investing, but settled on Manjit Minhas, who offered the money for a six per cent royalty instead of equity in the company.
