After Katrina, a renewed emphasis was placed on growing the New Orleans Jewish community and attracting young Jews to the region. On May 31 at 6:30 p.m., the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans’ Young Adult Division and the New Orleans Jewish Community Center’s Young Jews of the Crescent City will present Start Up People, 10 Jewish entrepreneurs and their nine different start-up businesses in New Orleans.

Each entrepreneur will have a booth where they will talk about their new business and the importance of giving back to the community.

The event will be held at the Goldie and Morris Mintz Center for Jewish Life (Tulane Hillel) with kosher food catered by Chef Harveen Khera of Hillel’s Kitchen.

The entrepreneurs include Andy Adelman of Bayou BBQ Cleaners, which deep-cleans barbecue grills; Josh Friedmann of Calliope Consulting, which does web development for small businesses and non-profits; Ron Gubitz of Whetstone Education, an online teacher observation platform; Jonathan Kaplan of Build My Bod, an app that compares prices on cosmetic procedures in the area; Andrew Pollack of Andrew Jackson Pollack designs, handmade glass d├ęcor; Peter Seltzer of Green By Design and other “sustainable” companies; Laura Stein of Dancing Grounds, establishing infrastructure for the dance community.

Tickets for young adults to attend the event are $5 in advance and $10 at the door. $5 of every ticket sold will be given to Emily’s Entourage, an entrepreneurial cause raising awareness and dollars toward cystic fibrosis research. The Entourage is supported by Tulane Hillel and is spearheaded by Jewish young adults in New Orleans.

Asher Friend, of Jones Walker, LLP, will be available to discuss plans for a follow-up event offering free legal advice for young entrepreneurs.
