Jewellery retailer and designer Paul Rubinstein and Feldenkrais method therapist Josh Balbin have launched Jewish business networking group Gesheft in Melbourne.

The two founders, both experienced networkers, launched Gesheft out of a perceived need for a truly effective Jewish networking group in Melbourne.

“It was surprising that no such networking group existed prior to last month’s launch of Gesheft, given the reputation Jews have for being close-knit and with good business acumen,” says Paul. “We’re very pleased with the progress of our group so far.  We hope to ensure that up-and-coming businesses are given an opportunity to grow their clientele and succeed, and by joining Gesheft Jewish business owners have an opportunity of meeting business people from outside their existing professional and social circles.  Gesheft aims to bridge the gap between Melbourne’s various Jewish communities, since Gesheft is open to all Jewish business people across the political and religious spectrum.”

Gesheft’s 90-minute meetings, he explains, “represent an efficient marketing strategy for busy people that’s perfect both for new business startups looking to expand their networks, as well as for experienced local business people who want to meet and mentor the next generation of our community.”

So far Gesheft has had two successful  meetings, with another upcoming event to be announced this month. Professions and businesses who have attended so far include accountants, real estate agents, electricians, jewellers, security specialists and chiropractors with meetings attracting between 20-30 people each.
