Inner City 100: Celebrating Urban Entrepreneurship at its best 

For sixteen 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 2016 Inner City 100 application is now open! Apply here.


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.

The Inner City 100 Symposium and Awards. Companies that make the list are invited to an event featuring management education seminars for Inner City 100 CEOs and an awards ceremony that historically draws more than 300 guests.


The 2015 Inner City 100 Symposium and Awards was held on October 7! The day began at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, with thought-provoking case studies from Harvard Business School faculty and sessions with leading CEOs. Attendees then moved next door to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum for Dr. Michael Porter's keynote speech, the Awards Ceremony, and a networking reception.
