Our Conferences Connect Diverse Entrepreneurs Across The Globe

About Us

Founder, Afenya Montgomery, MBA, MSN, RN, created The iCAN Collective after experiencing the lack of resources 

available to entrepreneurs from underrepresented 

backgrounds when launching her own

healthcare consulting business. 


Harnessing her skills in business development, 

relationship building, innovation and leadership, 

Afenya has worked tirelessly to close the gap for women and people of color building business from the bottom up. 

The iCAN Collective has hosted thousands of people at live events and has touched entrepreneurs worldwide.  

What began as a small group of entrepreneurs meeting at 

coffee shops and co-working spaces to mastermind, 

collaborate and innovate has grown 

into a movement connecting founders to tools of profitability in business through 

digital content and live activations. 

The iCAN Collective is a business networking platform and information resource for diverse entrepreneurs.  We connect early stage founders to established CEOs that have scaled their businesses and understand the highs and lows of building a dream.


We also provide live and digital content designed to help people with big ideas launch and sustain viable businesses.

We are Entrepreneurs, Dreamers and Leaders, joined together to share experiences, brainstorm ideas, perfect your pitch, and gather invaluable resources.


We support, motivate, and empower each other to reach our goals while holding ourselves accountable to ensure success.

“The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony.”


-Napoleon Hill on the Mastermind Principle
