About Building for Growth

Designed by ICIC, Building for Growth (BFG) is a new tuition-free executive education program that aims to help BIPOC- and woman-owned construction subcontractors build capacity and develop sustainable growth strategies that position their businesses to increase revenues and profits.

BFG’s inaugural cohort will begin in Spring 2022 with a maximum class size of 50 companies.

To be eligible for the BFG program, a company must be
  • An independent, for-profit corporation in the construction industry
  • At least 51% BIPOC- and/or woman-owned
  • Have annual revenues of $2MM-$10MM, or be on course to reach or exceed $2MM within the next 3 years*
*Companies with current revenues below $2MM will be evaluated based on recommendations from nominators, and the business’s growth trajectory and readiness to benefit from this program.
