Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is excited to return 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.

In light of the current situation, we have decided to offer the Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) Baltimore Opening Seminar as a virtual two-day seminar series that will take place the afternoons of September 15th and September 17th

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.”
