Many might know the popular show called Shark Tank, a show where aspiring entrepreneurs display their products and inventions to moguls in hopes to land an investment in their products. Shark Tank has become quite popular, running for eight seasons now; however, they just got some competition. “BizTank” an Orthodox Jewish version of the popular show Shark Tank just began its online series. Started by Joel Klein, a former rabbi and now executive of Immediate Marketing & Business Consulting came up with the idea. The web series was not started to gain an audience, rather to connect Orthodox entrepreneurs with Orthodox investors.
Klein has entrepreneurs meet in his office in Williamsburg where they pitch their product to a panel of “moguls”. Many startups have been pitched to “BizTank” among these were, “WaiverCar”- a car sharing program where drivers can ride for free, and “Cozy Cuddlerz”- a luxury pet products company.
From the professional set and props to their social media accounts, BizTank is proving itself in the Orthodox Jewish business community. You can see what happens here at http://www.biztankmoguls.com/.
