Saskatchewan Entrepreneurs Continue to Tame Dragons
On another recent episode of CBC's Dragons' Den, two more Saskatchewan businesses struck deals with the Dragons. This is on the tails of two other entrepreneurial groups, Breast Friends of Foam Lake, and Prairie Berries out of Keeler, who also successfully "tamed the Dragons".
3Twenty Solutions are three young men from Saskatoon with some big ideas and even bigger potential. Their pitch to the Dragons focused on turning portable shipping containers into portable offices for use on remote job sites, such as oil well sites. Brett Wilson, who is originally from Saskatchewan, quickly made a deal with the trio for more than what they were asking for. Check out the video:

This mother of five brought forth her solutions to a common laundry dilemma with a snap that keeps socks together in the wash. By the end of her pitch, Corla walked away with a deal from two of the Dragons, Arlene Dickinson and Brett Wilson. Here’s video from that episode:
