The hit CBC TV show Dragons’ Den, which holds open auditions in the Lower Mainland every year, is this year holding them virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applications are now being accepted online at cbc.ca/dragonsden/auditions.
Scheduled auditions will be held through video or phone calls.
The application asks for people to upload a 30- to 60-second “elevator pitch” about their product or service, as well as to answer more than 30 questions.
Applications are saved for a future season, and producers will only contact those who are selected to move on to a virtual audition.
Dragons’ Den gives aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their businesses to a panel of wealthy Canadian business moguls – known as the Dragons – in hopes of obtaining financial backing.
