The Inner City 100 program recognizes successful inner city companies and their CEOs as role models for entrepreneurship, innovative business practices and job creation in America's urban communities. The Awards marked the ICIC's 15th year and launched a formal alumni network of Inner City 100 winners. The list provides original data on the fastest-growing inner city businesses in the U.S. In the last 15 years, 750 unique companies have earned positions on the Inner City 100, collectively generating more than $2.1 billion in annual revenues and creating over 76,000 new jobs.
"We are excited to celebrate inner city businesses like DuneCraft whose success stories are not told nearly enough," said Mary Kay Leonard, president and CEO, ICIC, in a statement. "These entrepreneurs are driving economic forces in America's urban cores, growing their communities along with their businesses." DuneCraft currently employs 40+ people and has just invested $1.3 million in its newest facility. This will create 10-20 new jobs in the process. DuneCraft uses inner city and regional suppliers to create its products as much as possible, so the company's impact is even broader.
