Competition Opening Oct 1, 2019!
Junior Dragons Den is a student business competition and call to action for entrepreneurs from Grades’ 5 to College/ Trades school level to create their own summer job/ business, or to expand an existing one. Students are required to submit a business concept paper for their business idea, or their business improvement idea (in the case of an existing business). The concept paper speaks to the: who, what, where, when, how, why and start-up costs associated with the business concept, finishing off with why the applicant should be chosen to compete in Junior Dragons Den.
Students can enter the competition on October 1 through February 8, 2020. A selection committee will review and shortlist the top 15 candidates for the live pitch competition. The candidates will be matched with a local mentor to further develop their pitch and business idea. The live competition of the Junior Dragons Den will be held on April 8th, 2020 in Kamloops, BC.
Junior Dragons Den started as a West Kootenay-Boundary wide student business competition six years ago and has since expanded throughout the province with three regional competitions and a championship. The competition format is modeled after CBC’s “The Dragons Den”.
