Stilt Guys Walk Into The Dragons Den

The Stilt Guys (Mark Lefebvre and Kyle Sipkens) can say that they walked tall onto the popular CBC television series “Dragons Den”. What they can’t talk about is whether or not they cut a deal with any of the show’s five successful entrepreneurs.

“We signed a non-disclosure agreement prohibiting us from revealing the outcome of our pitch. Not even my mom knows what went down!” Explains Lefebvre who then goes on to leak tidbits about the experience of appearing on Canada’s most watched non-scripted series.

“We had a blast! They fired incredibly good questions at us and we gave it our best shot. Their camera phones were out from the moment we entered and the studio was electric.”

“The producers told us we were very relaxed and well prepared.” Added Sipkens “We spent close to an hour in the studio with the dragons so for us it was the best business consultation ever!”

When asked about Kevin O’Leary the supposed ‘tough guy’ on the panel Kyle’s response is typical of the Stilt Guys’ brand of cheeky humour. “He’s REALLY short!” Additionally, “We brought a few surprises and something for Kevin in particular, but we wanted to have fun with him and not be insulting. You’ll just have to tune in to see what the big man gets ‘up’ to.”

Speaking of tuning in – a viewing party has been scheduled for Wednesday, October 24 starting at 7pm at the Walkerville Brewery, 525 Argyle Road courtesy of the WEtech Alliance and Business Accelerator. Vice-president Yvonne Pilon welcomes friends and fans to “Come out and enjoy the show, meet the three new Stilt Guys, and hear about future plans as they get set to celebrate their 10th season in 2013.”
