For the fourth time in as many years, VisionIT, Inc. is receiving national recognition for being one of the nation’s 100 fastest-growing inner city companies. The designation is a part of the Inner City 100 competition organized by the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC), a national not-for-profit organization founded in 1994 by renowned Harvard Business School professor Michael E. Porter.
This year the ICIC ranked VisionIT 23rd out of the 100 companies listed—with 555% growth from 2002-2006.
“Once again we are humbled and honored to be a part of such a prestigious list of thriving inner city businesses,” said Christine Rice, VisionIT president. “Our continued inclusion as part of this list for the past four years is due to the consistent work of our team to provide the best in IT staffing and outsourcing solutions to our many customers across the nation.”
Now in its tenth year, the Inner City 100 is a national competition to find and rank fast-growing companies in inner cities across America. The program represents a unique partnership between the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, a national non-profit focused on creating healthy urban economies, and Inc. magazine, the leading publication for growing companies and entrepreneurs with a circulation of over 1 million.
The Inner City 100 celebrates and supports these growing companies and spotlights the importance of a robust business sector in creating healthy urban communities.
