Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is returning to San Diego for a third time in 2020 thanks to our lead sponsor, Kaiser Permanente. San Diego is home to 110 ICCC alumni, and since their participation they have averaged 73% growth in revenue and raised $2.8M in capital.

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

“To see how [ICCC] equipped a small business owner to take her company to a new level, and show her not only how to do it, but give her the tools to do it, is what inspired me and got me thinking of some of our companies that could benefit.”

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) San Diego 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.
