Bruce Croxon wants to invest in the next Canadian wave. The co-founder of the wildly successful dating site Lavalife, and a former “Dragon” on CBC TV’s Dragons’ Den, shares his informed insights into what it takes to succeed in today’s demanding entrepreneurial environment, speaking on the importance of collaboration, innovation, an open mind, and the need to stay on the cusp of technology when going after your business dreams. Bruce will now dole out his trademark advice to small Canadian companies looking to grow on a new BNN series, The Disruptors, which debuts on April 16.
Bruce joins BNN anchor and reporter Amber Kanwar as co-host of the weekly half-hour series, which also traces international business news and trends. Each week, the duo will analyze pitches and offer a frank assessment of their prospects.
“As a business operator and investor who got good at recognizing what technology can do, I look forward to bringing that perspective to the rapidly evolving technology innovation space, to help separate the practical from wishful thinking,” he said.
