On June 18th, members of the tri-state Jewish community will have a chance to pitch their start-up ventures to a panel of experienced entrepreneurs at Crown Heights Young Entrepreneurs’ second annual “shark-tank” style event.
The event will give a limited number of participants a chance to sell their venture to potential investors David Schottenstein, Shmuel Gniwisch, Daniel Wolfson and Esriel Rapoport. With the opportunity to raise between $50,000-250,000 in seed money, the participants will have the potential to make their business vision a reality.
This week, CHYE has announced that Anthiem Ventures has joined their Investor Panel.
Anthiem Ventures is an angel investment firm that provides early stage companies with both Funding and Guidance during their deployment of disruptive business models in their market.
Anthiem will be represented by their Principal Mr. Gedalia Weinberger.
Gedalia Weinberger is a seasoned business leader and philanthropist, highly active in Jewish communal and educational spheres. Mr. Weinberger is the General Manager and founder of American Healthware Systems, developers of hospital information systems. After a merger with Shared Medical Systems, Inc. (SMS), previously the largest healthcare information systems company in the world, the company was bought by Siemens Medical Systems. Mr. Weinberger sits on the boards of two hospitals, numerous projects and institutions which promote Jewish education and chesed, as well as a number of other Jewish social philanthropic and educational organizations.
Pitches will take place in front of a live audience on Wednesday, June 18, at Lubavitcher Yeshiva in Crown Heights, giving the public a chance to join in and learn as well.
According to Rabbi Yehoshua Werde, Director of CHYE, “We are making this event to generate opportunity in our community by giving participants the funds and guidance needed to succeed, create a forum for the public to hear the wisdom and insight of these investors, and advocate for entrepreneurship as a career path that our community can follow.”
