The Meaford Chamber of Commerce invites you to attend the 5th annual Dragons' Den Meaford competition that will be held on Wednesday, October 30th, 2013, 7:30 PM, at Meaford Hall. With this year's amazing lineup of Dragons and contestants itâ€™s an event that you will not want to miss.
Dragons' Den has been a great success for Meaford's local entrepreneurs and the organizing committee continues to improve the event every year. In 2013 the focus has been on developing the contestants to give them the best possible chance of success, both in the competition and, more importantly, in their critical first year in business.
The Chamber of Commerce organized three contestant workshops this year and the result has by far exceeded our expectations. The quality of the applications that we received this year was very impressive and we thank all of the businesses who applied to be a contestant for the significant effort that they put into their submissions.
The selection committee, comprised of members of our local business community, has now chosen our five finalists for the show. Each of them will be on stage, October 30, to pitch their business idea to our five Dragons. Up for grabs is a share in almost $30,000 in cash and prizes
Our five contestants for 2013 are:
Selena Blais Georgian Life
Paul Bishop Ride On Bikes
David Long ABBBE.com
Jason Elder Art See Design
Ken Robertson & Ron Wilson 4EEZ Ceilings & More
Once again this year the "Audience Choice" award will be awarded to the contestant who receives the most votes from the audience. Five dollars from every ticket sold will be put into a prize fund to be awarded at the end of the evening. Hereâ€™s your chance to become even more involved in this very popular event and help our local entrepreneurs to succeed.
Tickets are $25 + HST available at the Meaford Hall Box office (519) 538-0463 www.meafordhall.ca . They are selling fast so don't delay in getting yours.
