  • Kim Giffen, Thornbury
  • Jim Fewster, Meaford
  • Chantelle Boyes, Meaford
  • Jason Moore, Meaford

All applicants were required to submit a one-page synopsis detailing their business idea with an explanation of its relation to one of the four pillars of the Municipality of Meaford’s Economic Development Strategy… Retail, Agribusiness, Tourism or Green. 

Modeled after the popular CBC TV show, Dragons’ Den Meaford will take place at Meaford Hall on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 beginning at 7pm. Applicants will pitch their ideas to 5 local ‘Dragons’ for feedback and hopefully, cash. Each Dragon will bring a minimum of $1,000 to invest in the idea(s) they like best. This means that potentially, an entrepreneur could walk away with $5,000 for business start-up! Also up for grabs are a free business bank account, business plan assistance, business start-up mentoring, admission to a number of entrepreneurial workshops, an advertising package and more.

Tickets cost $10 (+GST), students $5 (+GST) and are available at the Meaford Hall Box Office by calling 1-877-538-0463 or online at
