TORONTO, ON (TheBadgerCA) – Following the massive release of the Blackberry 10 on Wednesday and the subsequent renaming of Research In Motion to Blackberry, stock in the newly renamed company has been faltering in all markets. Blackberry had hopes the release of the new phone would help right the company that had been languishing for several previous quarters, but few investors have been quick to follow.
Seeing little movement in their market share, CEO and President of Blackberry Thorsten Heins announced today that Blackberry would further the exposure and capital gain for the new phone by pitching the phone to the members of CBC TV’s Dragons’ Den, a reality/game show where inventors bring their ideas to a panel of multi-millionaires for the potential of venture capital.
Said Heins, “We have looked at various avenues to increase exposure and manufacture demand, and the best one we came up with is to pitch the team at Dragons’ Den to see if they’re interested in producing capital. We’ve been working with the CBC and Alicia Keys to determine the best availability as Alicia may be able to perform a song on the show. We’re happy to see this happen. We really need the help.”
The CBC has been working diligently on the scheduling and has stated that taping should happen in early March. Though not finalized yet, the episode may feature the Blackberry 10 pitch, along with pitches for a zombie apocalypse survival kit and a woman’s catering and event planning business strictly for cats.
