Annual ranking showcases the fastest-growing urban businesses in America
The Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) and Fortune have announced that Caduceus had been selected for prestigious 2016 Inner City 100 list. This recognition places Caduceus in an exemplary lineage of nearly 900 fast-growing and innovative inner city businesses.
ICIC’s Inner City 100 is an annually compiled and released list featuring high-power, high-potential businesses from around the country with headquarters in inner cities. Each company is selected by ICIC with help from a national network of nominating partners who seek to identify, spotlight, and further enable the named companies’ innovative urban entrepreneurship. Ranked by revenue growth, the esteemed recipients go on to have their names published in Fortune.
Caduceus ranked 1st overall on the list of 100 for 2016 and ranked 3rd overall in 2015. Carlos Lopez, the President & CEO commented “This is very exciting for the employees to be recognized for their hard work and dedication. We work and have become a part of the intercity of Atlanta, GA. We are honored to receive this award.”
The rankings for each company were announced at the Inner City 100 Conference and Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at the Aloft Hotel in Boston, MA. Before the awards celebration, winners gathered for a full-day business symposium featuring management case studies from Harvard Business School professors and interactive sessions with top CEOs. Keynote speakers at this year’s event included Interim CEO of Staples Shira Goodman, and Harvard Business School Professor and ICIC Founder and Chairman Michael E. Porter.
The Inner City 100 program recognizes and supports successful inner city business leaders, and celebrates their role in providing innovation and job creation in America’s cities. These companies strengthen local American economies, provide job opportunities for underrepresented communities, and drive forward economic and social development.
