The wind is breathing signs of spring
And now the Dragons are on the wing!
Forgive my bad poetry, but as the air warms up, the CBC is once again sending out its producers across Canada to pre-audition pitchers for its Dragons’ Den reality TV series.
That’s the show where you pitch real celebrity investors on your business idea, and they either negotiate with you in public to buy a piece of the business, or scoff at your naivete and send you packing. Or worse.
Auditions start Saturday March 14 (in Toronto) and finish in Montreal and Windsor April 11.
