Inner City 100: Celebrating Urban Entrepreneurship at its best 

For fifteen years, ICIC has been identifying and spotlighting 100 of the fastest-growing businesses located in America's inner cities.  These businesses, led by some of today’s most creative entrepreneurs, prove that not only can companies thrive in inner cities, but that inner city companies can enjoy unique competitive advantages.

The Inner City 100 list is published annually in FORTUNE and announced at the Inner City 100 Symposium and Awards.

Inner City 100 successes have inspired political and business leaders, academics and the media. The program has led to innovative investment programs, helped blaze a path for other inner city entrepreneurs, and provided enormous stimulus for change in local communities.

ICIC is excited to announce that in 2014, we're adding another dimension to the Inner City 100: 10 x 10. The Inner City 100 list will be comprised of the 10 fastest-growing inner city businesses in 10 distinct industry sectors. Winners will receive further recognition among their industry peers by ranking within the following 10 industry groups:

  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Professional Services
  • Food & Beverage
  • Retail
  • Media & Communications
  • Software & Information Technology
  • Transportation & Logistics
  • Healthcare & Biotechnology
  • Arts, Entertainment, & Recreation 

The Inner City 100 Symposium and Awards. Companies that make the list are invited to a two-day event featuring management education seminars for Inner City 100 CEOs and an awards ceremony that historically draws more than 500 guests. The 2014 Inner City 100 Symposium and Awards will be held October 15-16.  Learn more about the 2014 Symposium agenda.
