Every January, the Woodland Hills Chapter of JNET puts on a huge business networking event for the benefit of all of JNET's members and the entire Jewish Business Community in and around Los Angeles. 

Every year, the event gets better. This year will be no exception.

In Shark Tank season 5 in 2014, Chatsworth small business owners Julie Whiteman and her husband Brian pitched a photo book mobile app and service called Groovebook.

Kevin O'Leary (aka "Mr. Wonderful") and Mark Cuban made an investment in Groovebook. Later that same year, they sold Groovebook to Shutterfly, making it the second greatest success story in Shark Tank history. 

How did they do it?

Shark Tank Winner Julie Whiteman will be speaking at our January event, and telling us about...

How They Started Their Business

How They Got Their Groovebook Idea

The Long Road to Getting Onto Shark Tank

What Happened That Almost Squashed Their Shark Tank Hopes

Last Year's Event was a Huge Success

In January of 2017, the hall was filled as Amit Kleinberger, CEO of Menchie's Frozen Yogurt shared his wisdom about Branding, Wisdom and Success.

Members of the Los Angeles Jewish Business Community came together to discover Amit's philosophies that propelled Menchies into the World's Largest frozen yogurt franchise.

Those who attended said it was our best event ever...and they've all been great events.
