About Max

Max Freedman is a Manhattan-born, Jersey-raised, Philly-based writer and editor. He has reported on a variety of small business needs and educated many audiences about them. That said, his content is primarily geared toward newer business owners who need to understand basic terminology, processes, and loan application criteria. His goal is to clarify topics that the entrepreneurs behind growing small businesses might otherwise find complex.


Max has worked as a writer and editor on content for alternative lenders, business news websites, and blogs geared toward entrepreneurs in need of additional funding. To this day, he writes for a variety of clients and publications in the business writing sphere on topics ranging from SBA 7(a) loans to employee retirement plans and business entity types.


Max holds a Rutgers University bachelor’s degree and learned much of what he knows about writing and finance from a mentor with over a decade of experience in newsroom journalism and content creation. He moved to Philadelphia to focus on writing after three years of working and living in New York.
