Do you dare enter the dragon’s lair?
At Loyalist College, a steady stream of entrepreneurs did just that for a chance to appear on television on an upcoming episode of Dragon’s Den.
Rick Dolishny made the drive down from Peterborough to promote his company, BlushDrop.
He described it as a behind the scenes way for couples to gather pictures taken by friends and family at a wedding, beyond what a professional photographer or videographer would capture.
He says he wants his company to be known as the VistaPrint of wedding videos.
After his chance in front of the jurors he felt things went really well.
He said this was his first time appearing in front of the Dragons but he did have the chance to do something similar in Peterborough called the Bears’ Lair where he and his company won the innovation award.
Some people were there asking for marketing and manufacturing expertise while others were there just hoping their idea would capture the Dragons’ attention.
Belleville’s own Scott Granville brought a product forward that he feels will appeal to the germ-a-phobes out there.
He and his partners created a handle that can fold up into a purse or a pocket that people can use on public transit so they don’t have to grab onto the support handles or bars specifically.
No one heard today whether or not they made the cut for the show.
The panel said those auditioning would hear in the next month or so, with taping taking place between mid-May and June.
