The Team

We accelerate great businesses through mentoring and investments to close the racial and gender wealth gaps.

Last year, ICA accelerated 143 small businesses – 75% owned by women and entrepreneurs of color. ICA’s mentoring and investments helped our businesses grow revenues by 22% and secure more than $17MM in additional capital in 2019 alone.

The businesses ICA served in 2019 employed 547 workers, and paid nearly $16MM in wages to Bay Area workers in our communities.  

For over 24 years, we’ve provided the coaching, connections, and capital entrepreneurs need to grow their businesses and create wealth for themselves and their employees. And we have the data to show it.
