SURREY, BC— Dragons’ Den, Canada’s highest-rated entertainment program, is sending two of their fire-breathing venture capitalists to SFU’s Beedie School of Business.
Held at SFU’s Surrey campus on September 29, the sold-out event will include presentations from Jim Treliving, Chairman and Owner of Boston Pizza International and Bruce Croxon, Founder of Lavalife and Vida Spas.
Treliving and Croxon will discuss what they look for from budding entrepreneurs, and answer students’ questions on how to be successful in business. A special highlight will include a mini-Dragon’s Den, with two budding SFU entrepreneurs pitching to the Dragons.
“Entrepreneurship is at the heart of the Beedie School of Business student experience, which makes this event so special,” said Kirk Hill, Assistant Dean of External Affairs for the Beedie School of Business. “As one of Canada’s most-watched television programs, Dragon’s Den speaks to this country’s appetite for entrepreneurship, and we’re thrilled to have Jim and Bruce share their wisdom with our student body.”
The event starts at 6pm, at the SFU Surrey Theatre.
The Beedie School of Business event is hosted in conjunction with partners Venture Connection and Coast Capital Savings.
