Inland Empire, CA

Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is coming to the Inland Empire area for the first time in 2020 thanks to our lead sponsor, Kaiser Permanente. ICCC has hosted 6 cohorts in Los Angeles, which is home to 387 alumni, and since their participation they have averaged 82% growth in revenue, created 3,282 jobs, and raised $192M in capital.

For questions regarding the 2020 Inland Empire cohort, reach out directly to Anna Marie Cruz, Western Regional Manager, at (562) 631-7937 or amcruz@icic.org.

“This is an excellent resource for small businesses – definitely an MBA on steroids!”

Resources for Small Business Affected by COVID-19

In light of the current situation, ICIC and Kaiser Permanente have decided to postpone the Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) Inland Empire Opening Seminar date to Early-October. We remain optimistic that we will be able to come together in person for the Opening Seminar at that point.

In the short-term, ICIC is offering webinars and resources prioritizing business recovery strategies and emergency relief solutions to the small business community as they recover from the coronavirus crisis. As a result, we’ve created the Small Business Resource Center, which hosts a wide range of national and local resources aimed at supporting small businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic. You can find local California resources here.
