Living Local 413 is collaborating with Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) to offer a tuition-free, virtual leadership training program that helps small businesses build capacity and resiliency for long-term sustainable growth, as well as navigate the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Things are getting so exciting here at Living Local 413 that we wanted to take a minute and update you on our progress.
Even with the delays, disruptions, and challenges caused by COVID in 2020/2021, we are making major progress! We are currently working with our local Senators, State Reps, and regional organizations to establish long-term relationships and apply for grant programs and other funding sources available to us as a non-profit.
At the same time, we are also helping to organize, promote and potentially even distribute funds that are available to help small businesses in Western Mass.
Here is an example of some funding that is available.
Check out the details and see if your business qualifies!

A “40-hour mini-MBA,” the ICCC program provides business owners access to capital, one-on-one coaching, and short and long-term growth strategies. ICCC participants will develop strategic pivots, create an actionable growth plan, identify recovery solutions, and leave with community building resources to lead their business to success.

The 2022 ICCC Western MA cohort begins on Tuesday, 8/9 and Thursday, 8/11, and interested business owners can apply here by Friday, 7/29!
*Given that the program is fully virtual, participants can be located anywhere in Massachusetts.*
The ICCC program gives business owners the tools and connections to take their business to the next level. As alum Jhoiey Ramirez said,
“This program … it’s an MBA on steroids. I am so glad I took the time to do it.”
