First there was Shark Tank. Then came TechStars TV. And now, fueling the public's seemingly never-ending interest in "what it's like to work at a start-up," is Ctrl+Alt+Compete, a documentary that profiles five entrepreneurs as they navigate through demo days, pitches with venture capitalists, and media interviews.

The film won't debut in theaters until later this year, but for the next week, the film's production company, Halo-8, is offering it up for free online for CES. You can watch it here.

"Ctrl+Alt+Compete tells the story of how the next generation of entrepreneurs will redefine our technological future, and theres no better place to share that story than CES," the film's director, Brian Gilberson, told

Start-ups featured include, Guardly, LiquidSpace, PopVox, and Supergiant Games, and features commentary from entrepreneurship luminaries, like Zappos founder Tony Hsieh and Startup America CEO Scott Case. 

For entrepreneurs (or would-be entrepreneurs), it's worth checking out. Here's the trailer:
