Today marks a historic moment for Think Big! In partnership with the city of Rockford and the Provenzano Family - Joseph James Partners, Think Big will be launching a minority business accelerator and incubator.
SupplyCore CEO Peter Provenzano's Joseph James Partners will donate the former Jerome Interiors building, 1311 N. Main St., valued at $350,000, to the city.
The City of Rockford will renovate the building at a cost of nearly $1.6 million and lease the space to Think Big. The City will pay for the organization's operations for up to five years, as much as $1.3 million or up to $250,000 annually. Costs would be paid for from the city's share of federal American Rescue Plan Act funding.
