The Lions Den

Cal-X Lions Den
The panel of five seasoned professional investors (Lions) will hear pitches of the best business and product ideas from some the brightest entrepreneurs selected from the Cal-X California Stock Exchange Pitch Challenge and Lions Den direct applicants.
The entrepreneurs who dare to enter the “Lions Den” must try to convince the tough, self-made investors to part with their own hard-earned cash and give them the funding they desperately need to jumpstart their business ideas. But the Lions have a goal, too. They want a return on their investment and own a piece of the next big business idea. The concept is modeled after the hit TV shows Shark Tank and Dragons Den. We have partnered with The Kindheart Lionheart INSPIRATIONAL WORKS TV Network – to broadcast the Lions Den events worldwide.


In exchange for the Lions’ cash investment, the entrepreneurs give up a percentage of their companies’ equity. When the Lions hear a great idea, they’re ready to fight each other for a piece of it. Then the once-desperate entrepreneur can rejoice that the Lions find value in their product, service or business. But if the pitch is poor, the Lions will tear into the ill-prepared presenters and pass on the idea with a simple Lions roar of “I’m out!”
