TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/18/13 -- Co-founder of popular financial literacy program enRICHed Academy is happy to share his experience today about facing the Dragons on CBC's hit show the Dragons' Den. His highly successful pitch in last night's episode saw and ALL FIVE venture capitalist fighting over his business - a rare occurrence.
At one point Kevin O'Leary offered his endorsement and a 10 per cent share in the company. However, Cochran and his business partner Jay Seabrook decided on a joint venture with Lavalife co-founder Bruce Croxon, Wealthy Barber David Chilton, Boston Pizza's Jim Treliving and marketing guru Arlene Dickenson.
Cochran - who was $20,000 in credit card debt by the time he was 20 years old - and Seabrook created the enRICHed Academy, a DVD-based program that teaches young adults how to create wealth and avoid debt. The estimate revenue potential of enRICHed was pegged at over $150 million within the next five years, one of the largest valuations ever seen and accepted on Dragons' Den.
Cochran's energy and storytelling ability makes him ideal for a radio interviews and phone in programs.
