ICA Companies Top Fortune Magazine’s Inner City 100 List


inner-city-main

The 2013 Inner City 100, a list of the 100 fastest-growing urban businesses in America, was published today in FORTUNE, and ICA Companies are well represented. These 100 inspiring businesses, ranging from a pet relocation service, a wine lifestyle marketer, to a scrap metal regenerator, are creating jobs in America’s urban cores.

For the past 15 years, the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) has compiled its Inner City 100 list, highlighting the fastest-growing urban small businesses in America. This year’s list includes 28 women-owned businesses, a double in percentage since 1999, the list’s inaugural year. While many of these businesses are taking advantage of the burgeoning “mommy market,” several are breaking into industries heavily dominated by men, including construction.

In addition to an interactive interface highlighting all 100 winners, FORTUNE published several articles about the winners’ unique growth stories. Find those stories here.

As you can see the Bay Area winners below, we will have a lot fo celebrate during our ALL IN event on June 12, 2013. A round of applause will go to:

#2: Revolution Foods (ICA Company, Oakland…second year in a row at #2)
#32: Premier Organics (ICA Company, Oakland)
#55: Xantrion (ICA Company, Oakland)
#72: The On-line 401K (San Francisco)
#73: KW Engineering (Oakland)
#80: Yerba Buena Engineering & Construction (our very own, Miguel Galarza, San Francisco…also got inducted into the Inner City 100 Hall of Fame!!)
#83: Alpi International (Oakland)

It’s urgent that we grow more local businesses to create good jobs for people with high barriers to employment. This is the most effective way to increase the quality of life for everyone in this region. You can help this cause by donating to attend ALL IN 2013 on Wednesday, June 12th, 6pm at the Historic Fox Theater in Oakland.
