In this era of Entrepreneurship, Starting a business is a dream of many people. The show Dragon’s Den is here to show you some of those interesting concepts and how they are dealt with. With its next episode airing soon, the show has fans curious about what the new ideas in it would be. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t interested in starting a business.
Dragon’s Den is still worth watching to see the diverse range of people that come on the show. The Dragons this season are Arlene Dickinson, Manjit Minhas, Michele Romanow, Robert Herjavec, Wes Hall, and Vincenzo Guzzo. All these dragons own businesses worth millions, making them the best investors new business owners can get.
Dragon’s Den was inspired by a Japanese show of the same name and started airing way back on October 3rd, 2006. Due to the immense attention the show has received over the years, and it was announced to start airing its 17th season starting on September 15th, 2022.
Dragon’s Den Canada: How The Show Works
The show starts with the aspiring entrepreneurs bringing in their creative ideas to be pitched by the Dragons. They provide an interesting and practical presentation of their product along with its price and how much it costs to produce it. The business owners then also reveal details of how much they’ve earned and are expected to earn together with the deal they find suitable.
Having seen the idea presented, the Dragons then think about the deal and ask any questions they might have. They can negotiate it but cannot provide a deal less than what the company values. Dragons can also join together and split the money and part of the business between themselves.
They then announce the final deal, and the entrepreneurs are allowed to think about or discuss it for a few minutes. Finally, having decided what they want, they either come up with one final deal or accept one of the deals as it is or just decline all of them. Even if the accepted deals seem true, they are not final. They have discussed off-camera again.

She brought a deal of 1.2 million for 10% of her vegan leather bags company. The Dragons love her idea and present many deals, but she chooses Manjit Minhas’ Deal.

Easy Platter is the company the next entrepreneur walks in with. It focuses on providing meal preps by certified chefs straight at your home. He then ends up with a deal of 150,000 for 20 percent of his company, with both Manjit and Wes in it together.
Fourth comes to a student who dreams of having his own cooler company. Even though his temper isn’t cool, her coolers are quite great in quality. After finding out that it costs a whopping $400 to make a single cooler, none of the judges come forward with any deals.
