Business Exploration Series

The 4 part series was developed with an eye on assisting aspiring individuals in the community to explore entrepreneurship as a potential career path. The series will include everyday fundamentals from understanding the entrepreneurial mindset, how to recognize and evaluate opportunities, how to create a business and marketing plan and how to secure startup funding.

The courses will be taught by well-known business men from the community, who have built successful business from the ground up and are ready to provide hands-on know-how. “This is an incredible opportunity,” says Rabbi Yehoshua Werde, Director of CHYE. “Crown Heights is a community on the rise, and we are looking to create a startup revolution.”

Launched just 2 short years ago, CHYE has created a business resource center, specially tailored to the unique needs of the Crown Heights Jewish community. CHYE Promotes responsible business development, the building of a vibrant business network, and assisting emerging entrepreneurs in their pursuit of lasting success.

“People need more than just a dollar to succeed,” says Rabbi Werde. “A vision without action is a daydream, but action without vision is a nightmare. The series will train entrepreneurs in the visionary skills they need to succeed.”

The Series is open to men and women of our community and is free with advanced registration.
