Neal Hoffman

Shark Tank Airing: Season 6, Episode 612

Neal Hoffman has been in the toy industry for over a decade and is known as an “idea guy.”  After his Jewish son asked for an Elf on a Shelf, Neal developed the Mensch on a Bench and has since built it into the largest Jewish IP brand with over 100,000 Jewish families using Mensch, a hit app and a potential TV movie coming in the future.   With over 2 Billion media impressions, Mensch on a Bench is one of the most well-known Shark Tank brands ever!

 Neal specializes in talking to groups and spurring them into action.  Many people have great ideas, but few act on them.  With a great sense of humor Neal can address the process of starting a business, developing a killer PR campaign, targeting specific audiences and learning to succeed without taking yourself too seriously.

The Mensch on a Bench is the new Hanukkah tradition that adds Funukkah to Hanukkah and brings Jewish families together.
