China's Entrepreneurship Revolution is Focus of February 9 Movie and Panel Discussion
With a population of 1.3 billion, China has become a global economic powerhouse over the past decade. This trend can only accelerate as the world's second largest economy embraces the most capitalist of concepts: entrepreneurship. Indeed, the entrepreneurship revolution sweeping China -- and what this means for entrepreneurs and small businesses in the U.S. --is the subject of our discussion.
“China's Entrepreneurship Revolution - What It Means For You” will be held Tuesday, February 9 at 6:30 p.m. in the Jubilee Hall Auditorium. The event kicks off with a showing of a new movie, Win In China. The 60-minute documentary film centers on the hit Chinese Communist Television game show of the same name. This highly entertaining, Donald Trump-like game show is the largest, most lucrative business plan competition in the world, and serves as a metaphor for the entrepreneurial revolution occurring in China now.
Following the film, a panel discussion will be held on how China's newly emerging entrepreneurial culture will impact the United States and create opportunities for U.S. entrepreneurs and small businesses. Panelists are Shau-wai Lam, chairman of DCH Auto Group and a winner of the 2007 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award in New Jersey, Ole Schell, an award-winning documentary film maker and director of Win In China, and Dr. Jason Yin, international business professor and chair of the Department of Management in the Stillman School of Business. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Elizabeth McCrea, assistant professor of management and entrepreneurship at the Stillman School. A reception will follow the panel discussion.
Students, faculty, alumni and other members of the Seton Hall University community are welcome. The event is FREE and is also open to the public.
The event is sponsored by the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies in the Stillman School of Business, the student Entrepreneurship Club and the South-Orange Maplewood Adult School. The event is supported by the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations' Public Intellectuals Program, which is funded by the Henry Luce Foundation and the Starr Foundation. Further, the event gives special thanks to Dr. Yanzhong Huang, an associate professor in the Whitehead School of Diplomacy and International Relations, for his key role in its organization.
