Initiative for a Competitive Inner City

2021 Award Winners

100 Fastest-Growing Inner City Businesses



Every year, the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City identifies, ranks, and spotlights the 100 fastest growing businesses located in America’s inner cities. These companies are experiencing rapid growth—and making a meaningful impact on their cities and communities.

City Safe partners is proud to have been ranked #11 on this year’s list.

The 2021 IC100 winners, which represent a vast range of industries including construction, advertising and retail, were evaluated and ranked based on overall revenue growth during the four-year period from 2016 to 2020.

“Achieving multi-year financial growth is a significant accomplishment,” said ICIC CEO Steve Grossman. “The Inner City 100 class of 2021 sustained their momentum amid the unprecedented challenges faced during the pandemic to greatly expand their respective businesses’ revenue – a tremendous milestone we’re proud to celebrate.”

Grossman added, “These firms have been engines of job growth and helped build a healthy, inclusive economy during these incredibly challenging times. They have also been actively engaged in strengthening their communities by donating their time and resources to local organizations and charities. We are truly inspired by our IC100 winners.”
