Dragons’ Den auditions begin this month


From a media release:


  • Auditions kick-off in Toronto beginning January 19, 2013

Beginning in January 2013, DRAGONS’ DEN producers will hit the road for an audition tour, with more than 40 stops in various Canadian cities. Entrepreneurs have another opportunity to enter the den with the hope of landing financial backing for their business ventures.

The open audition tour will kick off in Toronto at the CBC Broadcasting Centre atrium (25 John Street) on January 19. Audition dates and locations are listed below. Tour dates will continue to be updated on the website at www.cbc.ca/dragonsden/auditions.

No experience is necessary and participants of all ages are encouraged to audition. After highly-rated ‘All-Student’ specials in previous seasons, DRAGONS’ DEN continues to seek young entrepreneurs who think they have what it takes to seal a deal with the country’s most renowned business tycoons.

All interested entrepreneurs should be prepared to pitch their business in less than five minutes. If they can convince DRAGONS’ DEN producers they are ready for their fifteen minutes of fame, they could be invited to brave the Dragons face-to face when the upcoming season is filmed in Toronto. Candidates are asked to apply online and bring a completed application form to the audition.
