Theo’s Adventure Capitalists

Synopsis
Entrepreneur and business dragon Theo Paphitis follows nine brave and bold British businesses hoping to make it big abroad. He explores emerging markets in Vietnam, India and Brazil with household names and ambitious small starters. With their livelihoods and reputations on the line, these companies need to work fast to get the hang of different working cultures, customer habits, sale seasons and red tape.
Theo knows they need to be persistent, savvy and ready to take a calculated risk. Will some of the biggest business decisions of their lives stack the cards in their favour or prove to be costly mistakes?

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
