Inland Empire, CA

Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is excited to be 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.

In light of the current situation, we have decided to offer the Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) Inland Empire Opening Seminar as a virtual two-day seminar series that will take place the afternoons of November 2nd and November 4th.

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

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