Starting today, Dragon’s Den will be hitting the road for an audition tour, and Windsor will be one of its more than forty stops in Canada.

Entrepreneurs from across the country will have another chance to face the Dragons in a bid to score some high-powered financial backing for their business ventures.

This year the stakes are even higher as Dragon’s Den and Shell Canada have partnered for a special “Future Now” energy innovation episode airing June 3rd. Three finalists will pitch their energy innovations to the Dragons, and the winning pitch will receive $100,000 from Shell Canada to help make their idea a reality.

Open auditions will be in Windsor on Thursday March 29th from 11am to 6pm at the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce located at 2575 Ouellette Place. Candidates need to apply online and bring a completed application form to the audition.

No experience is necessary. All interested entrepreneurs should be prepared to pitch their business in under five minutes. If they can convince producers they are ready for the limelight, they could be invited to face the Dragons when the upcoming season is filmed in Toronto. Candidates are asked to apply online and bring a completed application form to the audition.
