DRAGON’S DEN Prowling for Prospects

A Sweet Release....

Auditions for CBC's hit show kick off January 18, 2014 in Toronto

Time to polish up those pitches; DRAGONS' DEN producers are hitting the road this January to find the brightest business ideas in Canada.  The 2014 Audition Tour will be visiting more than 30 cities from coast-to-coast in search of enthusiastic entrepreneurs hoping for a chance to enter the Den and make a deal with a Dragon.  

The audition tour is open to the public and kicks off in Toronto at the CBC atrium (25 John Street) on January 18.  Complete audition dates and locations are listed below. Tour dates will continue to be updated on the website at www.cbc.ca/dragonsden/auditions.
