QEDC wins big at Resorts World NY 1The Queens Economic Development Corp. hit the jackpot at Resorts World Casino when the racino awarded the group a $50,000 grant the StartUP! Business Plan Competition, which aims to support budding entrepreneurs in this borough.

“Because entrepreneurs are the bedrock of our borough’s economy and helping small business owners is a main facet of our mission, we are extremely happy to partner with Resorts World Casino New York City to offer StartUP! this year,” QEDC Executive Director Seth Bornstein said in a prepared statement.

The grant was announced at QEDC’s Queens Taste 2017, a fundraiser held May 2 at the Hall of Science in Corona.

Participants in the competition will attend training classes and submit a business plan to be judged by a panel for a chance to win funding for their business.

“Resorts World Casino New York City is honored to join QEDC to support small business owners in Queens,” said Michelle Stoddart, Resort’s director of community engagement. “The StartUP! Business Plan Competition will enable local entrepreneurs to access new tools and resources to continue to innovate in the booming Queens economy.”

The competition starts in August and ends in March. For more information, visit queensny.org/qedc/business/programs/startup.
