Jonathan H. Freiberger, a member of the law firm of Freiberger Haber LLP, was selected by the Queens Economic Development Corporation (“QEDC”) to be a judge in the 2018 Queens StartUP! Competition, a signature program of the QEDC that provides Queens-based small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs with business education, mentoring, access to capital and development of business skills.
In his role as a judge, Mr. Freiberger reviewed, analyzed and provided feedback on several of the entrants’ business plan submissions. The winners were announced at an awards presentation on April 26, 2018 at Resorts World Casino in Jamaica, New York. Each winner took home a $10,000.00 cash prize to help grow their respective businesses.
Freiberger Haber LLP congratulates the deserving winners: Victor Hunt (Paragon Real Estate Technologies) (innovation category); Movitsza Simmons (Smooth Pops) (food category); and, Rebecca Deutsch (Impact Fashion) (community category).
Mr. Freiberger was proud to participate in such a meaningful event. “In our practice, we provide business counsel and litigation services to individuals and businesses of all sizes. It was nice to be able to give back to the community by participating in the Queens StartUP! event and assisting participating entrepreneurs in making their business ventures become a reality or otherwise furthering their business goals. I hope to be given the opportunity to participate again next year,” said Mr. Freiberger.
