Picture Me Picture Me Tijuana Makes Me Happy Win In China Tierra Madre Arakimentary


As the first decade of the 21st century comes to a close, the world’s largest and most lucrative business-plan competition is held... not in the United States or in any western country, but in communist China.

Beyond the 1.3 billion Chinese, the competition goes largely unnoticed in the rest of the world. But in communist China the competition, aptly named Win In China, is broadcast on national TV.

Over 120,000 entrepreneurs compete for prize money in excess of $5 million with the winner receiving nearly $1.5 million dollars to invest in their new business plan.

Documentary filmmaker Ole Schell is given unprecedented access to the show’s producers, contestants, judges and audience. Like much of China, what Schell discovers is not always exactly as it seems.

Win in China is more than a lucrative business plan competition – it is an opportunity for the government to educate, motivate and inspire the latent entrepreneurial talent in the most populous nation on earth.
