Calling all early-stage high-growth businesses: our month-long accelerator program for businesses with up to $500K in revenues is now accepting applications.
Stabilize, grow, and get capital-ready:
In the Lab at ICA, high-growth Bay Area companies create a growth roadmap, path to increased profitability, strengthen their business models, and prepare their businesses to take on micro-debt or micro-equity. All companies that complete the Lab at ICA are eligible to receive up to $50,000 in seed capital from ICA’s Growth Fund.
In The Lab you’ll get access to expert facilitators through group workshops, peer-to-peer support and new connections, office hours access, and deep 1-to-1 support to create a tactical growth roadmap and prepare you to apply for seed capital.

✓ Located in the 9-county San Francisco Bay Area.
