Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is returning to Springfield & Western MA for a second time in 2019 thanks to our lead sponsors, MassMutual Foundation and Berkshire Bank. We had a successful inaugural cohort of 50 businesses averaging $606k in revenue, 7 full-time employees at the time of participation, and an average age of 11 years.

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 Springfield & Western MA cohort, reach out directly to Vi Mai, Senior Program Coordinator, at (617) 238-3038 or vmai@icic.org.

“I was very impressed with the organization of the program, what was going to be covered, the explanation about the various areas of business information that would be shared, it was all-encompassing. I thought it would be invaluable to my clients to attend such a program to get their business to the next level.” Samalid Hogan, Regional Director, MA Small Business Development Resource Center
