Dragons' Den at GLOBE
As an added bonus to GLOBE Trade Fair visitors, GLOBE organizers have coordinated with the producers of CBC's the 'Dragons' Den' to hold auditions for their upcoming sixth season right on the GLOBE 2010 Trade Fair Floor. The Dragons' Den features five of Canada's most successful entrepreneurs who listen to pitches from Canadian businesspeople seeking investment.
Show producers will audition Canadian GLOBE exhibitors for their chance to travel to Toronto to appear on Season Six of the show and, most importantly, to get in front of the 'Dragons' for a chance at some investment dollars. Auditions take place Friday, March 26th from 12:00pm to 4:00pm on the GLOBE Trade Fair Floor.
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.
