Who makes it on the Inner City 100 list?
The list-makers are chosen based on their growth in revenue over a 5-year period. However, Inner City 100 companies exemplify more than outstanding growth. They are forces of opportunity, optimism and transformation in their communities. Their successes are an inspiration to other inner-city business owners and entrepreneurs. Their stories prove what is possible in our urban communities.
