QDG Graduates from Goldman Sachs Business Program

Published Friday, January 11, 2019


Chicago, IL – Michael Janis, President and CEO of Quest Design Group (QDG) recently completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program in Chicago.

“I was thoroughly impressed by the level of quality instructors, consultants, and resources provided during the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program,” shares Michael Janis, President and CEO of Quest Design Group. “My classmates and I were given an amazing opportunity to get out of the office and away from the day-to-day responsibilities of running our businesses and reimagine ways to grow.”

The 12-week program pulled together more than 30 business owners from the Chicagoland area from a wide variety of sectors. The hands-on businesses classes culminated in a written and oral presentation of 2019 business plans.

“Much of what I learned reconfirmed our overall business strategy,” says Janis, “but the level of enthusiasm amongst my peers was contagious. I feel like we’re ready to expand our office locations to provide our unique Proactive Project Management approach to engineering in the building industry.”
