Individual Coaching is a key element of the ICCC program designed to prepare participants to raise capital, address their business’s specific challenges, and steer them towards sustainable growth. ICCC partners with local and national organizations to provide coaching to meet business owners’ needs.
After the Opening Seminar, participants receive the ICCC Coaching Survey, which they must complete in order to sign up for and receive Individual Coaching. Depending on their coaching needs, participants can sign up for one or both of the following types of coaching:
CAPITAL COACHING | GENERAL BUSINESS COACHING
This type of coaching is designed for participants who are actively seeking capital and want help perfecting their capital pitch deck. Based on their capital needs, participants are matched with one of our capital provider partners, which include commercial and small business bankers, equity investors, non-traditional lenders, and impact investors.
“My capital coaching experience went above and beyond my expectations. My coach was a subject matter expert, and he bulletproofed our pitch presentation. He was a resource that brought tremendous value to my company. He levelled the playing field for us.” Harmony Point ITC, 2018 ICCC Chicago Participant
This type of coaching is designed for participants interested in coaching on topics other than the capital pitch (eg. marketing, business strategy, cash flow management, etc.). Participants will be introduced to a coach through one of our coaching partner organizations, which include national partners such as Pacific Community Ventures and SCORE, and local organizations such as chambers of commerce, SBDCs, CDCs, etc.
“My coach was great, he was very clear what his skill set is and where he can help me. He’s brought a couple of excellent viewpoints to the table that I wouldn’t have thought about. I am happy.” Chelette Enterprises, Inc., 2018 ICCC Los Angeles Participant
“… It is great to have someone outside our company and industry as a sounding board for ideas and problems… I was introduced to Angel investor group and I am preparing to present to them. We are working on it together.” Step Ahead Solutions, 2018 ICCC Sacramento Participant
