What we do
CICG provides entrepreneurs and innovators access to experienced, high-caliber experts in non-dilutive funding, business planning and analysis, marketing, corporate communications and more.
Through a social entrepreneurship consulting model, we expand our clients’ capacity and skill sets in a way that is cost-efficient, on-demand, and effective.
Our track record speaks for itself. We’ve helped raise more than $88 million for our clients in non-dilutive funding, and our project management services keep our clients coming back, with over 80% of clients returning for follow-up projects.
Why do we do this work? Because we’ve been where you’ve been – trying to get an idea or business off the ground – and we know the hurdles that stand in your way.

Praise for CICG
"We have been using CICG as a resource for around 7 years. They have been extremely helpful at assisting when the workload piles up from services such as policy writing, grant applications, HR support, and general business planning. The team cares, produces results, and never pushes for services that are not required. They have become a “go-to” resource for our company"
