Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) is an Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) program that positions inner-city businesses for long-term success. It’s designed for busy executives of all expertise levels, and its impact is proven to strengthen businesses and the inner-city communities where they operate.
By ensuring the success of its alumni, ICCC promotes sustainable business growth in underserved communities. It helps bridge the gap for 75% of inner-city businesses that are in need of capital, but that cite lack of knowledge and relationships as key barriers to obtaining it. Since its launch in 2005, ICCC alumni have created more than 15,000 jobs and have raised $1.47 billion in capital.
The 40-hour executive education program spans several months to accommodate demanding schedules. Participants develop custom solutions for their businesses during individual and group coaching sessions, and gain a new network of peers, mentors and capital providers.
