I do believe the QPD cuts effect the citizens of Quincy less than the QFD cuts. I'm not aware of any recent increase in crime other than the unfortunate shooting of a young man that would not have been prevented if we doubled the number of officers on the street. As for QFD...I happen to live on the edge of the city and the nearest fire station is about 3 miles away. Nobody has ever demanded…

The wasted Hydro dollars would have provided for four officers for the next 10 years based on current cost. But the Dems spent the money in the city and the Dems spent the money in Springfield. They kicked the can down the road so they could look good.to the voters. When it comes to safety Quincy needs more police than it does firemen. Our cops are on the street 24-7 handling all kinds of situations…

2nd annual entrepreneurial expo at Quincy Mall

8 months, 4 weeks ago from GREDF

Event will be held Saturday, August 9th from 9:30am to 1:30pm in the Community Room

Several Quincy area organizations are coming together to host an informational event for current and aspiring entrepreneurs on Saturday, August 9th. The event will take place in the Quincy Mall Community Room beginning at 9:30am. The event is free and open to the public. 

“We wanted to provide a one-stop learning experience for entrepreneurs at any stage of the process,” said Kimm Minnick, property manager for the Quincy Mall. “We are working with our partners to create an action-packed agenda that includes presentations and time for specific questions.” 

The day will begin with a Small Business Development Center presentation outlining the steps to starting a business - including the importance of a business plan and cash management.  

At noon the Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce (QACC) will announce the winner of the 2014 Business Plan Competition.  

Lunch will be provided by the Quincy Mall immediately following the QACC announcement. Participants will have an opportunity to network and ask questions during this time. Stations will be set up for specific topics in the areas of financing a small business, marketing and sales, legal and tax issues, and human resources.  

According to Charles Bell, director of the Quincy Entrepreneurship Center, planning the event has been a group effort. “When we initiated the event last year we wanted to get a number of organizations involved so current and prospective small business owners would have access to a wide network of local resources in one place,” Bell said. ”It was so well received we decided to improve the event and hold it a second year.” 

The Entrepreneurial Expo is being coordinated by GREDF in collaboration with the Small Business Development Center, Quincy Mall, Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce, John Wood Community College, Quincy University, The District, Illinois WorkNet Center and the Quincy Business and Technology Center. 

In addition to the presentations and small group discussions, packets of information will be available outlining where to go for further assistance, as well as information about local training opportunities and schedules of upcoming entrepreneurship events. 

There is no cost to attend, and no RSVP is required. Questions may be directed to Charles Bell at GREDF 217.223.4313 or charlesb@gredf.org, or any of the participating organizations.
