The Team

Our Accelerator starts with our entrepreneurs.

As we all reckon with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on our business community, ICA entrepreneurs persevere. Our Accelerator companies have not only done the hard work to weather this crisis, they have maintained their commitment to creating good jobs that build wealth for their employees and owners.

This year, Cohort 5 of the ICA Accelerator won’t have the customary send-off. We will not be hosting a pitch-event this quarter, but we still wanted to ensure that the community gets to know our amazing entrepreneurs.

Earlier this year, we asked the founders and owners of the companies in Cohort 5 of the ICA Accelerator to tell us more about their businesses, their inspirations, and how they are coping with the challenges of running a business in the midst of a global pandemic. We also asked about what they’re looking forward to and what’s next for each of their companies. You can read our interviews – which have been edited for clarity – by clicking the links below.
