Northern Virginia

ICCC is excited to come to Northern Virginia for the first time in 2021, thanks to our lead sponsor, Kaiser Permanente! ICCC has previously hosted cohorts in Baltimore, MD, and in Washington, DC, and we look forward to expanding our impact across the DMV area and strengthening the local small business ecosystem in Northern VA!

The ICCC Northern VA program will be offered virtually in 2021, with the Opening Seminar Series taking place the afternoons of Tuesday, October 19th and Thursday, October 21st.

For questions regarding the 2021 Northern VA Cohort, reach out directly to Anna Marie Cruz, Western Regional Manager, at or 617-238-3055.

“The Opening Seminar provided one of the best business instructions I’ve received in a long time. The level of clarity and real world examples were key to keeping me focused and engaged in active listening. The speakers were excellent.”
