Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is excited to return to Hawai’i for the 3rd time in 2021, thanks to our lead sponsor, Kaiser Permanente! Hawai’i is home to 150 ICCC alumni, and since their participation they have averaged 19% growth in revenue, and raised $3.62M in capital.

The ICCC Hawai’i program will be offered virtually in 2021, with the Opening Seminar Series taking place the mornings of Tuesday, October 12th and Thursday, October 14th.

For questions regarding the 2021 Hawai’i Cohort, reach out directly to Anna Marie Cruz, Western Regional Manager, at amcruz@icic.org or 617-238-3055.

“I loved the speakers. I went to Columbia Business School, and the speaker quality was just as good if not better! I was really impressed with the knowledge and insights.”
