    I would rather see people on the panel who are self made.

    While the people on the panel have talent and are sucsecsful, non of them actually made it on there own. By beating the pavement and beating the odds and beating the hardest part of any business which is seed capital and financing for cash flow.

    On the real shark tank each panelist went from rags to riches.

    Much luck

    Your 100% right

    When you grow up with wealth you can burn thru lots of dads money without worrying. So u can try many businesses and maybe one works.

    When you make it on your own your rule and have a special brocha. U make it from scratch !

    Why criticize? This seems to be a really nice thing for yungerleit trying to get a foot up.. If anyone has any other great ideas, let them try and do it, nobody has the monopoly on trying to do good and to help someone else.

    You would rather someone who ‘made it on their own’? Every successful person is self-made, of course with Hashem’s help; No one can can build themselves up without ambition and drive, and of course a lot of hatzlocha. ‘Burning through money’ does not happen, hard work does. Next time maybe you should think before judging generous, successful people who are willing to help other’s get their businesses off the ground.
    Much luck to this great idea and all the hopeful entrepreneurs.

    Is this an opportunity to meet potential investors, or generous rich people, looking help people start a business?

    First off G-D bless Rabbi Werde and C.H.Y.E for making the effort to put on this event. Last year was a great start and I think this year will be 10 X stronger.

    Stop complaining about who the investors are, nobody is forcing you to pitch and if you have better ideas for who should be in the investors panel then I am sure Rabbi Werde will be happy to work with you.

    To #8 absolutely, C.H.YE events are geared for newbies to speak to successful people.

    Like shark Tank it would be nice to hear a success story where they helped someone and they accomplish their goal from the first event that they had some type of follow-up story

    It’s not complaining or critisizing it is an observation.

    Sometimes it’s best to get advise from people who learned the hard way. And from rough and tumble experience. And from people who fell and got back up on there own.

    No comment is critisizing the indviduals who may be hard working and great pepole and balei chesed etc.

    switch it up..

    This is an amazing opportunity for both sides. The organizers could have just gone on their own and not included anyone else in their business strategies nor provided such a forum for a “chance or break” . If you are passionate about your venture and have a great idea that fits in to today’s and tomorrow’s needs – hopefully in the form of a breakthrough, then they can be the experts that can see things that others apparently have not seen – otherwise one would have had financing long ago in a more conventional manner. It doesn’t matter how they… Read more »
