Tri-port entrepreneurs are reminded they can have their five minutes of possible fame if they pitch their product or service to Dragon’s Den folk who will be in town to look for North Islanders who want to pitch their products and possibly wind up on the popular CBC show.

Producers of Dragon’s Den hit the road earlier this month for a cross-Canada audition tour, with more than 40 stops along the way.

The show offers entrepreneurs from across the country a chance to face the Dragons in a bid to score some high-powered financial backing.

Open auditions are in Port Hardy Feb. 23 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Quarterdeck Inn & Marina Resort, 6555 Hardy Bay Rd.

No experience is necessary and participants of all ages are encouraged to audition.

In fact, after a highly-rated All-Student special in Season Six, Dragon’s Den continues to seek young entrepreneurs who think they have the money-making chops to take on the savviest business tycoons in the country.

All interested entrepreneurs should be prepared to pitch their business in under five minutes.
