New York 2009

ICCC New York 2009 (November 18-19, 2009) provided opportunities for participants to meet with equity capital providers who are seeking investments in America's underserved communities. At the ICCC coaching session, companies refined business plans and practiced pitching their plans to equity providers. During the ICCC welcome reception and equity matchmaking session, inner city entrepreneurs met investors, business mentors, peers, customers, and suppliers.

Inner Cities are defined as core urban areas that currently have higher unemployement and poverty rates and lower median income levels than the surrounding Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA).
