Our partners are a vital part of the Inner City Capital Connections program. As a non-profit that operates across the US and Canada, the support of trusted and influential community members in our cohort locations is invaluable.
One of the most impactful ways you can engage with us is by nominating small businesses for ICCC. The success of our program is enhanced by your ability to identify business owners who have an appetite for growth and the potential to strengthen their surrounding communities.
While nominating is an important facet of our partner relationships, there are many other ways to engage with ICCC. We care deeply about building strong relationships with our partners, and we want to work with you to find the most fulfilling ways to work together in support of small businesses in your area!
