With nearly half a million companies in U.S. inner cities, ICIC relies on a network of nominating partners to identify firms for our programs. You may nominate your own company or another business that meets the qualifications for the program.

Nominate a company for Inner City Capital Connections

ICCC is a national program designed to accelerate small business growth and access to capital. ICCC helps firms in the growth-to-exit stage overcome obstacles to reach their respective goals. Our participants experience different business challenges from the need for capital to restructuring growth strategies.

  • Inner city location – headquarters or 51%+ of physical operations in economically distressed urban areas of the U.S. or have 40% or more of your employees residing in an economically distressed area.

Become an ICIC Nominating Partner

ICIC’s nominating partners are our eyes and ears on the ground. Nominating partners own their own business or work directly with growing small businesses across the county every day. ICIC’s programs compliment the services and expertise of our nominating partners and provides added value for participating companies. Each year, ICIC recognizes its nominating partners at the Inner City 100 Summit and Inner City Capital Connections Match-Making event. We also refer companies to our nominating partners.
