How It Works

Students submit a business concept plan for their business idea or business expansion (in the case of an existing business) explaining their concept/expansion and why they should be chosen to compete in Junior Dragons Den.

Short Listed Applicants

The top 5 applicants from each category will advance to the regional competitions in Dawson Creek and Fort St John. Each will be assigned a mentor from their local community. Mentors will assist with everything from start-up considerations and marketing, to coaching and presentation skills.

The top 5 applicants from each category will then work on refining their business concept into a comprehensive one-page business plan with detailed financial statements (outlines and templates will be provided).

In addition, competitors will be assisted in creating a live business pitch to use at the live competition. The Junior Dragons Den crew will assist by filming and recording each video to ensure the best pitch is captured.

The Show

Junior Dragons will pitch their business idea in a live show format in the closest regional location – Dawson Creek or Fort St John – to a panel of local leaders (aka Dragons) in front of a live audience, including friends and family.

Winners will be selected based upon 80% input from our Dragons and 20% audience participation through voting.

Prizing & Awards

The 1st and 2nd place winners from each age category will receive awards and automatically advance to compete in the Junior Dragons Den Northeast Championship to be announced closer to the date.
