The Quincy Chamber of Commerce has established a variety of different groups and subcommittees that are designed to help you promote your business.
Quincy 2000 Collaborative is the economic development agency of the Quincy Chamber of Commerce. It is a private, non-profit economic development entity that unites Quincy’s public and private sectors in a common economic development mission. Working together, business and government leaders promote Quincy’s economic vitality and make the city an exceptional place to live, work, invest and visit.
Since 1992, Quincy 2000 has played a vital role in attracting new business to the city, helping existing businesses grow, and providing financial support for new and emerging businesses. Whether it is starting a new business, expanding, or relocating to Quincy, you have a partner in Quincy 2000 and the Quincy Chamber of Commerce. We can help you create a business plan, prepare a loan application or guide you through the complexities of zoning, licensing and permitting requirements.
Working closely with the City of Quincy, the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Mass. Office of Travel & Tourism (MOTT), Discover Quincy markets the City of Quincy locally, regionally, and internationally, using print media, social media, brochure distribution, attendance at trade and travel shows and more. Discover Quincy responds to frequent requests for information on Quincy’s many historical, cultural and recreational offerings and organizes “FAM” (familiarity) tours for the traveling press.
There are many opportunities for the Quincy business community to promote and advertise to the potential visitor, through advertising in publications such as the
Discover Quincy Visitors Guide and City of Quincy map, to having a listing on DiscoverQuincy.com
Quincy Center for Innovation (QCI)
The Quincy Center for Innovation (QCI) is a unique co-operative work environment located just 7 miles south of Boston. It is the ideal environment for co-working and collaboration, supporting start-ups and early phase companies. It was formed in 2013 as a strategic partnership between the Quincy Chamber of Commerce, Quincy 2000 Collaborative, Eastern Nazarene College and the City of Quincy.
At the QCI, you will find that it’s about more than just workspace – it’s an all-emcompassing program that focuses on helping entrepreneurs and start-ups fulfill their dreams. That’s why we refer to our residents as “Program Entrants” or PE’s. As a PE you will have access to mentors and individuals who are there to help you plan and grow your business. You will work alongside fellow entrepreneurs who share the same passion and enthusiasm as you. It is this collaborative environment that makes the QCI the perfect place for start-ups to begin on the South Shore of Boston.
The 20,000 square foot facility is located at 180 Old Colony Avenue in Quincy, Massachusetts, just minutes from the Wollaston Red Line MBTA station. There is ample on-street parking as well as reserved parking (depending on the PE level).

Quincy Film Bureau
The Quincy Film Bureau was formed in 2008, shortly after the Massachusetts tax credits made it more favorable for production companies to film in the state. The Quincy Film Bureau is designed as a “one-stop shop” where filmmakers get help with securing government permits and scouting potential filming sites, arrange police and fire details, and obtain information on local businesses and service in Quincy.
