Are You Ready to Face the Dragons?

If you're a Canadian exhibitor at GLOBE this year you'll want to keep reading this post. Dragons' Den is touring across Canada landing at GLOBE 2010. On Friday, March 26th the producers of CBC's hit show Dragons' Den will be holding auditions for their upcoming season on the GLOBE Trade Show floor.

Dragons' Den gives hopeful GLOBE 2010 businesspeople the chance to pitch their latest innovation or hot new idea to five of Canada's most successful entrepreneurs including Arlene Dickinson, Robert Herjavec, Jim Treliving, Kevin O'Leary, and W. Brett Wilson. And if these "Dragons" like the idea they'll contribute a sizeable investment toward it.

We're thrilled to be able to give our Canadian GLOBE exhibitors the chance to audition for this fabulous show and potentially travel to Toronto to appear on the sixth season of Dragons' Den. But be warned: the Dragons don't open their wallets for just anyone so come prepared with a confident and convincing pitch.

Auditions will take place on Friday, March 26th from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm. No experience necessary - just be ready to pitch your business in under five minutes.

And as extra incentive, entrepreneurs with an eco-friendly business, invention, or idea could qualify for a $100,000 Greenvention Prize, sponsored by Sun Chips. A Greenvention is an eco-friendly idea that will make a huge difference in the world. For example, SunChips' Greenvention was their world-first compostable chip bag. Now, in association with CBC's Dragons' Den, they are on the search for the next big Greenvention, perfect for GLOBE 2010 exhibitors to take part in!
