Jewish Shark Tank' helps entrepreneurs find success
A former rabbi is helping entrepreneurs in Brooklyn find success through a web show he calls the Jewish version of 'Shark Tank.'
A panel of investors sits on the set of Biz Tank and listens to entrepreneurs pitch their ideas, much like the popular hit ABC television show ‘Shark Tank.’
Joel Klein says Biz Tank has had 50 business pitches since it started.
They have seen everything from wine bottles covered in chocolate to a bib designed to keep babies safe.
One of the show’s first contestants secured a $90,000 investment for his pet bed and supply company.
Klein says although about 70 percent of the contestants are Jewish, it is not a requirement for them to be.
He says about $6 million in deals have been invested.
