Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is excited to be returning to Washington, DC for the third year in 2020 thanks to our lead sponsor, Kaiser Permanente. Washington, DC is home to 175 ICCC alumni, and since their participation they have averaged 31% growth in revenue, created 628 jobs, and raised $15M in capital.

In light of the current situation, we have decided to offer the Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) Washington, DC Opening Seminar as a virtual two-day seminar series that will take place the afternoons of September 22nd and September 24th.

For questions regarding the 2020 Washington, DC cohort, reach out directly to Maria Tata, Senior Program Coordinator, at (617) 238-3019 or mtata@icic.org.
