Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is returning to Memphis for the fourth year in 2019 thanks to our lead sponsors, FedEx and Regions Bank. Memphis is home to 187 ICCC alumni, and since their participation they have averaged 156% growth in revenue, created 441 jobs, and raised $3.9M 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 Memphis cohort, reach out directly to Marynee Pontes, Senior Program Coordinator, at (617) 238-3035 or

“I knew right away that ICCC was going to be a partnership that would bring a lot of value. [ICCC] provide[s] high-quality programming, value-added resources, and the opportunity for small businesses to network on a national scale.” Joann Massey, Director of the Office of Business Diversity & Compliance, City of Memphis, 2018 ICCC Memphis Nominator
