Quincy’s Chamber of Commerce is expanding with the launch of the Quincy Center for Innovation, to assist start-ups and aspiring entrepreneurs. Located in a new 12,500-square-foot space at Eastern Nazarene College’s Old Colony Business Administration Building, the center is expected to feature education, programs, and one-on-one mentoring, as well as provide a network of industry specialists to help growing companies. “As we became immersed in our efforts to attract biotech and life science companies to Quincy, we learned that an innovation center is often the breeding ground for young entrepreneurs in many of the emerging industries thriving throughout the state whom we hope to attract,” said Dean Rizzo, president of the Quincy chamber and executive director of Quincy 2000 Collaborative. “We are extremely grateful to Eastern Nazarene College for its partnership and support.” The facility is to open early this month, with Donna Mavromates, the chamber vice president, at the helm.
