This special “Success” episode celebrates some of the Dragons’ most successful deals in the Den, as well as some of the biggest accomplishments in their own lives and businesses.

After eight seasons on DRAGONS’ DEN and a remarkable rise to success in the marketing industry, Arlene Dickinson has proven that any obstacle can be overcome with perseverance. In this special episode, Arlene recounts the devastating flood that wiped out most of Calgary’s downtown core, including the headquarters of Venture Communications, a company she transformed from a small marketing agency to a national firm. Arlene will also update audiences on the progress of one of her most successful deals to date, as she visits Pur Gum’s manufacturing plant just outside of Zurich, Switzerland.
The special then visits Vikram Vij in his hometown of Vancouver, where through hard work and passion, he has turned a group of restaurants and consumer products into a global brand. Vikram’s latest venture is building a new flagship restaurant, a huge addition to an already impressive food empire. Audiences will have a chance to catch up with the husband-and-wife team behind Casalinga Foods’ cabbage rolls, who made a deal with Vikram this past season. Vikram shares his expertise, working with them to find ways to more efficiently manufacture their product.
