Dragons’ Den Auditions – Windsor

Windsor News, Biz X magazine

CBC’s Dragons’ Den Windsor auditions are almost here.

What better way to prepare for your audition than to practice your pitch in front of local entrepreneurs and investors. In this session, local inventors and entrepreneurs will be giving 5 minutes to pitch their idea to local entrepreneurs/investors. Each pitch will be followed up with a 5 minute feedback session. This session is open to anyone looking for an opportunity to practice their pitch regardless of if you will be attending the Dragons’ Den Windsor auditions set for February 12th. The Practice Your Pitch session takes place February 4th – approximately 1 week before CBC Dragons’ Den auditions come to Windsor.

 

This is a great opportunity for local entrepreneurs/inventors to practice their pitch before CBC’s Dragons’ Den auditions come to Windsor February 12th. Please note this is NOT the real auditions. This is an opportunity to practice your pitch in front of local entrepreneurs and investors. 

Judges: Included on our judging panel is Mark Lefebvre of Stilt Guys, as seen on Season 7 of CBC’s Dragons’ Den. Who better to provide you with feedback than someone who’s faced the Dragons’ head-on.

Who Should Attend
Entrepreneurs and Inventors looking to practice their pitch and get “real” feedback from “real” investors/entrepreneurs.
