Urban Entrepreneurship at Its Best

Meet the 2019 WinnersApply | Nominate | IC100 Success Stories 

ICIC has identified and celebrated the 100 fastest-growing firms in urban, under-resourced communities since 1999. Inner City 100 (IC100) awards are published annually in FORTUNE and unveiled at the ICIC National Conference.

Job growth is the engine of a healthy, inclusive economy. For the first time, IC100 winners will be selected based on both revenue growth and job creation over a four-year period (2015-2019).

Because of generous financial contributions of our lead sponsors, Chevron and FedEx, there are no fees associated with this award.
