Season Four Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 8 p.m. on CBC Television
VANCOUVER, Dec. 1 /CNW/ - Vancouver entrepreneurs Mark Chadwick and Neil Currie will face the fire and present their company, VantageWire.com (www.vantagewire.com), this Wednesday at 8:00 pm on CBC. Dragons Den is into its fourth season now with $15 million worth of investment deals.
"We're excited and a little bit nervous to see what the editing room has done with our footage. I can safely say we gave them all the ingredients for a very entertaining television show," said Mark Chadwick, President of VantageWire.com. "We just hope the producers allow some time to focus on the business and not the 'drama' amongst the Dragons and us in our episode!" said Neil Currie, Vice President.
VantageWire.com is the first and only website to provide investor with free real time stock prices and data on all Canadian and US stock markets. Real time information on stocks can cost investors up to $100 per month. Giving that information away to investors with a simple sign up process has spurred rapid growth for the Vancouver based website company.
"We have taken the Google & Facebook business models of giving the end user something useful for free and creating a platform for advertising to generate revenue," said Chadwick. The company was launched in early 2008 just before the stock market crash yet the website has maintained its steady growth since its inception.
Dragon's Den (www.cbc.ca/dragonsden) continues to be a barometer for the economy. Past seasons saw waves of mom and pop eco-preneurs. This season, the stakes are even higher as victims of the economic downturn step into the Den. Laid-off employees of Ontario's auto sector and British Columbia's mining industry are looking for capital to start their own empires. In today's economic reality, only the best businesses stand a chance at surviving the Dragons' gruelling grilling.
The Dragons are after an idea that will make them an instant fortune so candidates must be smart, prepared and persuasive. Let's hope Mark and Neil can face the fire and come out victorious in one of the most exciting opportunities of their lives.
Tune in on Wednesday night, Dec 2, at 8:00 PM on CBC to find out.
