Inner City Advisors (ICA) is an Oakland-based nonprofit and nationally known accelerator of businesses that create living wage jobs. Together with Fund Good Jobs (the capital fund spawned from ICA), ICA/FGJ companies have generated more than $200 million, created millions in employee wealth, and employed more than 2,500 Bay Area residents. Through a mix of entrepreneurship education, pro bono management consulting through a network of successful committed business advisors, talent management to assist employers in finding and retaining employees and a capital fund that provides hard-to-secure resources for the emerging businesses, ICA has found the right recipe to grow the capital and employment base in Oakland and the East Bay. Today, ICA and Fund Good Jobs bring together financial, human and social capital, with business acumen and grit to help motivated entrepreneurs develop businesses in their communities that employ people from those communities.
Inner City Advisors seeks a Chief Executive Officer who is entrepreneurial in spirit, deeply passionate about ICA’s role in the community, and will combine those characteristics to shape an organization that is poised for growth and increased impact. ICA’s new CEO will take the organization to even greater heights by leveraging a background of executive leadership and management experience, well-honed business creation and fund development skills, experience/knowledge in building scalable, sustainable businesses, and above all, a commitment to driving economic development for low-income communities.
