About Building for Growth
Building for Growth (BFG) is a national, online tuition-free executive education program designed by ICIC that helps BIPOC- and woman-owned construction contractors build capacity and develop sustainable growth strategies that position their businesses to secure contracts and increase revenues and profits. The program provides participants with the knowledge and tools to increase revenues and profits by securing new contracts, building their backlog, accessing capital, and increasing their bonding capacity. To learn more, see our BFG 2-pager.
