Dragons’ Den

About the Show

DRAGONS' DEN, an original CBC Production and audience favourite, returns to delight viewers for a new season.

Aspiring entrepreneurs from across Canada vie for a coveted spot in the Den to pitch potentially profitable business investments to some of the nation's most successful tycoons. The Dragons use their own money and know-how and have the power to catapult companies into home-grown business success stories. 

Every Wednesday night at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT) theatre and venture capital collide. Stakes are high as good deals may be rewarded, but there's also the risk that bad ideas will get burned. DRAGONS' DEN offers the audience a front-row view as the country's top business moguls wheel and deal with entrepreneurs who dare to brave the Den.
