DRAGONS’ DEN will be holding open auditions in Thunder Bay on Saturday, February 9th, 2013 at the Regional Centre, Lakehead University, 955 Oliver Road, Thunder Bay, ON. Dragon’s Den is looking for the next big thing for the hit series on CBC Television.

DRAGONS’ DEN gives aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their businesses to a panel of wealthy Canadian business moguls – the Dragons. Successful pitchers will have a chance to earn real investment – from the Dragons’ own pockets!

This is a fantastic opportunity for entrepreneurs and small business owners to come down and pitch their business concept for the chance to appear on national television. We would love to see as many people audition as we can!

Think Globally… Act Locally

Think Globally… Act Locally is hosted by the North Superior Workforce Planning Board. The keynote address by Thomas Townsend will be followed by a facilitated discussion designed to bring community partners such as you, to a common understanding of what needs to be done to ready the region and its workforce for the opportunities in the coming years. 

These opportunities will be presented through retirements of baby-boomers across all sectors, as well as sector-specific development (i.e. mining specific and related support services, forestry, manufacturing, etc.).
