For the better part of a decade, I have been a cast member of CBC’s Dragon’s Den and ABC’s Shark Tank. Today, both of these television shows enjoy tremendous popularity in North America, but it was not always that way.
At a media event years ago, I sat with other cast members of the then-newly launched Shark Tank. In the audience there were about a hundred journalists. When it came time for questions, there were none. To the entertainment industry, business was boring and no one cared.
