Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) Small Business Training Program kicks off

In the wake of COVID-19, small businesses have faced unprecedented economic hardship that challenges their very existence. Minority-owned small businesses have suffered the worst. Just as the pandemic has taken a disproportionate toll on people of color, minority-owned businesses have similarly been at higher risk due to a history of and systems of inequality. As a result, research suggests that a significant percentage of these businesses won’t survive.
This year, Kaiser Permanente is sponsoring a third cohort of DC- and Baltimore-area small businesses’ participation in the Inner City Capital Connections Program, a tuition-free executive leadership and coaching initiative. On July 15, we kicked off the Baltimore Cohort with a nominator event featuring Kaiser Permanente’s Vice President of Brand, Communications, and Community Engagement Jill Feldon, a video welcome from Baltimore Mayor Jack Young, and more.
