Washington, D.C.

Inner City Capital Connections

In December 2016, ICIC and Catholic University’s Busch School of Business announced that they will bring the ICCC program to Washington, D.C. for the first time, and also pioneer a new model that incorporates student participation. The partnership, which includes a 4-year commitment from Catholic University, is part of a project the university has been incubating to develop enterprise solutions to poverty. Connecting small business owners with business students will bring a new dimension to ICCC while expanding its impact in the Washington D.C. community.

Read more about ICCC’s regional and national impact in the 2016 Impact Report.
