Adding to 25 years of impact.

25 is more than a number. It’s more than a milestone. It’s more than data. 25 is proof that progress is possible. 25 is a commitment to creating opportunity. 25 is a community determined to deliver equity. 25 is the people, the businesses, the risks, the chances, the lessons, the growth, and the change. But more than anything, 25 is just the beginning.

Join us this year as we celebrate 25 years of impact and reaffirm our commitment to investing in the entrepreneurs who grow great businesses and create wealth in our communities.

Showcasing and investing in the next wave of Bay Area entrepreneurs.

Celebrating the Community who built 25+ together.

Meet Our Community

More than numbers.

The challenges of the last year presented extraordinary difficulties for small businesses. While many ICA-supported companies experienced job and revenue losses, they responded with resilience while ICA remained focused on our mission to accelerate great businesses to close the racial and gender wealth gaps.

Impact data shows: resilient businesses, targeted coaching, and access to capital are essential to transforming our economy into one that works for all.
