Cyder to Appear On Dragons Den
TORONTO, ONTARIO (October 10, 2023) - The fight for user’s right to privacy takes center stage this week as Cyder, a Toronto-based cybersecurity startup, gears up to be featured in an upcoming episode of CBC Dragons’ Den. Founded by Will Christodoulou and Sukhman Dulay, Cyder is a browser extension that lets users take control of their data and get rewarded for browsing the web.
Having pitched to hundreds of investors in the past, the two co-founders felt confident entering the den. However, nothing could prepare them for Robert Herjavic threatening to sue them.
“It was simultaneously the most entertaining yet nerve-wracking pitch we’ve ever done,” says Will Christodoulou, Co-founder and CTO.
Despite the initial shock of getting threatened with legal action in the episode preview, the co-founders report having an overwhelmingly positive experience. We’ll find out next week whether or not they secured an investment from one of the Dragons.
The episode premieres on Thursday, October 12th at 8 PM (8:30 NT) on CBC.
