Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is returning to Chicago for a seventh year in 2019. Chicago is home to 331 ICCC alumni, and since their participation they have averaged 92% growth in revenue, created 1,739 jobs, and raised $200.5M in capital.

Our goal is to recruit and support small- and medium-sized businesses of all diverse backgrounds. We plan to do so by partnering with organizations that work with:

  • Minority-owned businesses
  • Women-owned businesses
  • LGBTQ-owned businesses
  • Immigrant-owned businesses
  • Veteran-owned businesses
  • Disadvantaged business enterprises (DBEs)

For questions regarding the 2019 Chicago cohort, reach out directly to Marynee Pontes, Senior Program Coordinator, at (617) 238-3035 or
