Quincy, Massachusetts, is a city with a deep history, and is truly a place of founders and innovators. From John Adams and John Hancock as founders of the United States of America to the Howard Johnson’s ice cream parlours and hotels, Zildjian cymbals, and Rosenberg’s Dunkin Donuts, Quincy has brought incredible innovation to the world.

At one point in time, Quincy was a manufacturing city with rock quarries and ship building. It once had a thriving retail economy that was decimated in the advent of malls. While it had lost some of its economic luster, Quincy is now starting to see new life through real estate development and investment. We seek to aid in returning Quincy to its former commercial glory by strengthening the entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem.

Boston and Cambridge have exhibited immense growth within the innovation economy over the last decade, and we want to bridge that energy and spirit and help to create 1,000 jobs south of Boston over the next 10 years. To support our efforts, we were donated 13,000 square feet of office space in the heart of Quincy Center, directly across the street from the Red Line.

Our call is currently out for entrepreneurs with ideas and early stage business plans to improve commerce, government and community with technology. We want them to join us as we help them to get their businesses off the ground, help them to scale up, and to grow into space in Quincy and south of Boston.

We believe in Quincy’s future as much as we admire Quincy’s past, and we are committed to strengthening the local and regional economy through the development of startups and through the creation of good-paying technology jobs.

Join us in this mission to create 1,000 jobs over the next 10 years, and support us in stimulating the innovation economy just south of Boston.

1,000 jobs mean economic growth for southeastern Massachusetts.
1,000 jobs in Southeastern Massachusetts mean more reasonable commutes for local residents.
1,000 jobs for local residents means high wages, homeownership and tax revenue for local communities.

This initiative will seek to alleviate the congestion of Boston and all roads leading to it. It seeks to spread the wealth a bit wider and provide greater job access to local communities south of Boston.

Help us make the founders and innovators of today as historical and legendary as those from our past.
