Technocolour Dreams Paint Party


Yvonne Arbour and Dominic Sabourin from Brantford, Ontario.


Dragons Den Season 10: Episode 21



$150k for 20%



The Problem

There isn’t a real problem here, but Dominic claims that Canadians haven’t been exposed to the particular Party scene that his company features.

Their Solution

Dominic and Yvonne created the company Technicolour Dreams to bring a new and unique style of party to Canada. They use 100% non-toxic paint (Dom even drank a cup of it for effect), and the parties are marketed towards university students.


Before any negotiations started, Dominic and Yvonne invited the Dragons to a sample Paint Party which looked like a lot of fun and was thoroughly enjoyed. However, once questioned about the valuation and their numbers, things started to get messy. They said each party costs about $10k, but they had no real set margin because the cover charge can fluctuate based on the venue. Furthermore, the risks involved were quite high because insurance to cover a 2000 person event, runs about $5000 – which would further cut into their profits. At the end of it all, the Dragons liked the concept but made no offers.
