Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is returning to Baltimore for the third consecutive year in 2020, thanks to our lead sponsor, Kaiser Permanente. Baltimore is home to 153 ICCC alumni, and since their participation they have averaged 36% growth in revenue and raised $2.58M in capital.

For questions regarding the 2020 Baltimore cohort, reach out directly Anna Marie Cruz, Western Regional Manager, at (562) 631-7937 or

“Human capital is critical to growing the ecosystem for a healthy entrepreneur environment in Baltimore. Working with ICCC was a great opportunity to connect the dots to the resources and the value they bring, and to help us grow human capital.”

Resources for Small Business Affected by COVID-19

In light of the current situation, ICIC and Kaiser Permanente have decided to postpone the Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) Baltimore Opening Seminar date to Late-September. We remain optimistic that we will be able to come together in person for the Opening Seminar at that point.

In the short-term, ICIC is offering webinars and resources prioritizing business recovery strategies and emergency relief solutions to the small business community as they recover from the coronavirus crisis. As a result, we’ve created the Small Business Resource Center, which hosts a wide range of national and local resources aimed at supporting small businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic. You can find local Maryland resources here.
