Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is excited to be returning to Portland for a second time in 2020 thanks to our lead sponsor, Kaiser Permanente. We had a successful inaugural cohort of 93 businesses averaging $1.3M in revenue, 4 full-time employees at the time of participation, and an average age of 10 years.

In light of the current situation, we have decided to offer the Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) Portland Opening Seminar as a virtual two-day seminar series that will take place the afternoons of September 29th and October 1st.  

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

“It was interesting and very well planned. The speakers were excellent and the information provided was relevant and very helpful.”
