ABOUT IC LOCAL

Last year, the IC network invested over $12MM and was ranked the 7th most active angel network by the HALO Report.  Our investment momentum comes thanks to our active membership, engagement with high-quality entrepreneurs, and growing local network initiative -- led by our first local network in Philadelphia.  IC Philadelphia members have invested over $1MM, pledged $500K to scale locally-incubated impact enterprises, and supported its local companies by syndicating to the larger IC network.  IC Philadelphia has paved the way for new local networks, with IC North Carolina launching in 2011 and IC NYC and SF in 2013!
