We (Jesse, Luke and Mason Hambly) have been selected to appear in an upcoming episode of DRAGONS’ DEN, airing February 1st, 2018), at 8:00 PM (8:30 NT) on CBC Television.
We created Pressa Bottle two years ago and haven’t looked back since! Our product is unique in that allows users to press and juice fruit into their water. Our bottle is a fun and healthy alternative to buying sugary additives or drinks. We started the brand with a Kickstarter campaign, found a manufacturer in China and began working with retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue, and Staples over the last year. Pressa Bottle was created to help Canadians make a healthier choice without sacrificing flavour.
We’re grateful for all the support we’ve received in our hometown and the surrounding areas. I’d love to talk to you about our experience pitching on the show, so please feel free to contact me at (519) 993-7397 to set up an interview or to sample Pressa Bottle in advance of our TV debut.
Launching a business is no small task. No matter how big an idea you think you have, it still takes a lot of work and a ton of cash. Enter DRAGONS’ DEN, where aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their business concepts and products to a panel of Canadian business moguls who have the cash and the know-how to make it happen. They've all been there themselves, so pitchers better not enter the Den unprepared. It takes more than passion to convince these boardroom barons that an idea is worth their investment. The Dragons are ruthless and rightly so - it's their own personal money on the line.
One of the most successful Canadian reality programs, DRAGONS' DEN reached nearly one-quarter of all Canadians through the course of the 2016/17 season. In addition to its success on-air, DRAGONS’ DEN is also a hit online, boasting an active and engaged online community and averaging nearly 93,000 page views per week. Full episodes and exclusive behind-the-scenes content can be viewed at cbc.ca/dragonsden.
DRAGONS’ DEN is filmed at the CBC Broadcasting Centre in Toronto and airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT) on CBC Television. Tracie Tighe is executive producer and Christopher Nelson and Yette Vandendam are senior producers. Dianne Buckner hosts.
