Chamber (264837)

The Crenshaw Chamber of Commerce will conduct at 9 a.m. Monday, July 23 a special meeting—in conjunction with Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Hills—at the Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Hills – Crenshaw Medical Offices, 3782 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

The meeting will introduce local Crenshaw area and minority businesses to the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC).  ICIC administers the Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) program that educates inner city small businesses about the forms of capital and matches them with appropriate capital providers.

Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) is a national program designed to help small businesses in economically-distressed areas build capacity for sustainable growth in revenue, profitability and employment. The goals are achieved by means of a comprehensive 40-hour curriculum that combines targeted executive education sessions, including best practices in strategy, sales & marketing, talent management and small business finance, with local coaches/mentors, and with access to potential capital sources and broad professional network connections.

The ICCC program provides free training, education and mentorship to small businesses to build their capacity and access to capital.

At this informational session you will hear from Kaiser Permanente and ICIC leaders about the success of this dynamic partnership in promoting local economic vitality, and:

•    Learn about the successful outcomes and the impact of 2 years of ICCC;

•    Learn about the program nominating process and how to identify great candidates or nominate your own small business; and

•    Network with leaders from throughout the communities you serve.

The meeting is open to the public.  Capacity is limited and registration is required. For registration or more information, call (323) 293-2900, visit, or email
