The New York City Entrepreneur of the Year in the category of technology is David B. Schick, founder and president of Schick Technologies, Inc. This dental firm manufactures and markets a computerized dental X-ray system that uses no film and exposes patients to significantly less radiation than traditional X-rays.
Now in its seventh year, the awards program recognizes entrepreneurs whose vision, innovation and hard work have established and sustained successful and growing businesses, as well as creating jobs while fostering social and economic benefits throughout New York City.
Schick is now eligible to become a National Entrepreneur of the Year Award recipient. Those awards will be announced later in November.
Founded in 1992, Schick Technologies, Inc., which began in the basement of Schick`s home, currently employs more than 100 people.
