Via Fundfindr, video of PeerFX, a 2008 NVBC competitor, on the CBC VC/Business Plan show Dragon’s Den. Florence Leung and Robert Dunlop appear on the show and offer $200k for 25%. The Dragons show reluctance and counter-offered 51%, which PeerFX accept, though my understanding is that they ended up not accepting it afterwards.
I’d personally never watched Dragon’s Den, but after seeing this, perhaps I should give it a chance. Do VCs always meet in dark, grimey warehouses? You can watch Season 2 on CBC’s site, and Season 3 premieres September 29.
