SARNIA, January 26, 2015 – It’s time for aspiring entrepreneurs from Sarnia-Lambton to put their pitches to the test as they fight to be a part of Dragons’ Den’s landmark 10th season! Next month, producers of the popular CBC show will hit the road, visiting cities from coast to coast in a quest to find Canada’s next great batch of entrepreneurs.

The cross-country audition tour will be making a stop at the Lambton College Event Centre on Friday, February 13 from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.

The audition tour welcomes participants of all ages with businesses at any stage of development.

Prospective pitchers are encouraged to apply online and bring a completed application form to the audition.

Online auditions begin this month and will continue in-person throughout February and March across the country.
