QEDC is your source for your small business needs. Whether you are looking to start your own business, or you already have a business you are looking to grow, we are here to help you through expert one-on-one consultation sessions and group-based classes.
The mission of the Queens Economic Development Corporation is to help small businesses. In view of the Coronavirus, we are taking the following steps:
- We have compiled a Resource Guide detailing programs to assist small businesses. These include loans, grants and other aid available through Federal, State, City, and Private agencies. The Resource Guide can be accessed here. It is updated as we receive new information.
- Assistance in filling out application and all other client services will be done remotely via telephone. To request an appointment, email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be contacted within 24 hours. Please know our office in Kew Gardens is closed.
- The Entrepreneur Space Commercial Kitchen Incubator is fully operational and staff is taking additional steps to ensure that it is a safe environment for our clients. For more information, please call 718 392-0025.
- The Queens Tourism Council is working with our cultural, recreational, restaurant and sporting communities to support them as best we can.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact us. Be careful, help those who are vulnerable and wash your hands.
FUEL THE FRONT LINES
Fuel the Front Lines is an initiative of Acting Queens Borough President Sharon Lee, Queens Together, Queens Night Market and the QEDC to help to meet the needs of front line healthcare workers, other emergency responders, and Queens communities in need through partnerships with local independent restaurants and food businesses. We will fill the urgent need for nourishment while at the same time providing a lifeline to the small businesses that define our neighborhoods. Make your tax-deductible contribution and help us deliver good food made with love by workers in Queens, for people in Queens
