As we conclude another week of the COVID-19 crisis I wanted to share an update on how ICA has been responding. Our team has been hard at work to meet the needs of our entrepreneurs. We and the entire small business community are in this together.
We are working to quickly launch the ICA Rapid Response Liquidity Fund, which will provide critical emergency capital paired with expert guidance from ICA’s team and network of advisors. If you are an entrepreneur in the Bay Area in need of emergency funding, tell us about your capital and advising needs and sign up for more info and updates about the Fund.
If you are a community member, you can make a difference for local businesses by contributing directly to the Fund. ICA is finalizing major commitments to the Fund and will begin deploying cash to businesses soon.
If you have more questions, check out the FAQ, or email us directly. If you are looking for small business resources, we are continuing to update our resource list, and our Programs team remains on call for you.
While we are working hard to meet the needs of our businesses, we appreciate the uncertainty we are all facing. ICA will continue to provide updates on our rapid response efforts and encourage you to keep reaching out to us with your needs and support.
