We believe entrepreneurs can solve the world’s most pressing problems. Starting with the ones right outside our doors.
Dense networks of innovators generate their own energy and economic power. At CIC, we believe in harnessing that power to improve the communities where we live and work. In other words, CIC is about more than having a place to work. It’s about having an impact.
While our clients are all doing amazing things on their own, our real power lies in what we can do together. Since our origins in Cambridge’s Kendall Square, CIC has engaged pro-actively with local communities to fund minority startups, build innovation hubs, develop mentorship programs, and promote equitable economic growth.
