Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) is a national program designed by the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) to help small- and medium-sized businesses in economically-distressed areas build capacity for sustainable growth in revenue, profitability, and employment. Since
2005, 2,221 ICCC alumni have
revenue, created 19,907 jobs, and raised $1.92 billion in
capital. As our alumni succeed, we promote sustainable business growth in
under-served communities across the country.

- Have annual revenues of at least $500,000
