Each year we recognize, celebrate and support fast-growing companies whose success illuminates the competitive business advantages of being in the inner city. For nearly 20 years we’ve placed 928 companies on the Inner City 100 list, which is published annually by Fortune.

The award winners are chosen based on their growth in revenue over a 5-year period. The average growth rate of the 2017 Inner City 100 companies during the previous five years was 414%.
