In 2012, ICA launched Fund Good Jobs, an innovative investment fund geared to invest in growing small businesses with a tailored form of blended capital in the amounts of $100k to $2M.
In direct response to the challenges our companies face in accessing smart capital, this fund enables ICA to directly overcome entrepreneurs’ biggest barrier to growth by focusing on the capital the business needs, not what simply what they can get. All capital investments will be made in partnership with ICA's suite of portfolio services: pro bono management consulting and strategic advisors, discounted professional services, and the right connections to grow small businesses.
The mantra is in the name, Fund Good Jobs. As a philanthropic venture, our return is first and foremost tied to the creation of good jobs throughout the Bay Area. We seek to maximize this return by investing in high-need, high-growth small businesses that will have a significant impact in creating good jobs locally. With extensive experience in preparing and facilitating hundreds of small businesses with their financing efforts, we seek to compete, enhance and compliment the small business capital ecosystem with our trusted capital partners. Together, we will be best positioned to do what is best for growing small businesses with the right capital investments and unlock the economic activity necessary to maximize the creation of good jobs that transforms communities.
