Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is excited to return to Canada for the 2nd time in 2022, thanks to our lead sponsors, Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC)! Canada is home to TBA ICCC alumni, and since their participation they have averaged TBA% growth in revenue, and raised TBA $M in capital.

The ICCC Canada program will be offered virtually in 2022, with two options for the Opening Seminar Series.

Option 1: Afternoons of Tuesday, September 20th and Thursday, September 22nd
Option 2: Afternoons of Tuesday, October 18th and Thursday, October 20th

“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!”
