Toronto, ON — A special edition of CBC’s hit TV series Dragon’s Den featured a deal by MBA’11 alum Tim Ray’s FoodScrooge group-buying website. The Feb. 29 episode highlighted some of the shows “most memorable entrepreneurs” and updated viewers on how their new ventures have fared. Tim’s deal with Dragons Arlene Dickinson and Bruce Croxon saw the pair invest $125,000 for a 35% stake in the company. Scant weeks later, Foodscrooge was purchased by industry leader WagJag, “the quickest exit in Dragon’s Den’s history,” according to host Dianne Buckner.

Read all about Tim’s venture, and those of his fellow alums Michele Romanow, MBA’08 (, and Derek Szeto, BCom’05 (RedFlagDeals), in the feature story ‘Group-buying Power in QSB Magazine’s current issue.
