The 2015 Flatbush Business Competition

On May 5th the Yeshivah of Flatbush Business Competition, and all the competitors went to the one of the biggest banks in the entire world, J.P. Morgan. After many months of hard and diligent work the contestants got to present their ideas to 5 Judges from J.P Morgan (3 of which are Flatbush Alumni).

The 4 Groups were: Brian Fuks with his idea “Time Charger,” a watch with a portable charger that can charge your phone. Next up was “Touch Security” by Abraham Goldman, Dylan Sutton, and Sam Beyda, a new way to lock your doors with your finger. After was Daphna Ben-Ari with her business, “Daphna Ben Ari New York,” a new shoe company that would compete with the likes of Manolo Blahnik, Brian Atwood, and Stuart Weitzman. Last but not least was “Rush Brush” by Sammy Burekhovich and Jason Dayan a company that wants to revolutionize the way Americans brush their teeth with their automatic toothbrush/retainer.
After arriving in Manhattan we turned the corner on 6th Ave and saw where we were going to be presenting. The building was huge, after walking in we were greeted by Vicki Shammah (Rabbi Beyda’s Sister) and taken to the 32nd Floor. We walked into the magnificent J.P. Morgan conference room and got to work. After, the contestants presented and the judges asked their extremely imperative questions, which would help further the contestants businesses, it was time to pick a winner. After 20 minutes of deliberation the judges had picked 2 winners. One award would be for the best presentation and the other for overall best business, which takes in to account idea, presentation, and execution. The award for best presentation was given to Rush Brush with their attention grabbing commercial and great conveyance of their idea. The award for best overall business was granted to Touch Security with their innovative and feasible business plan. ~Marvin Azrak
