The Inner City (ICIC) and FORTUNE announced that Networking For Future (NFF) was selected for the 2016 Inner City 100 list, a list of the fastest-growing inner-city businesses in the U.S. Inner City 100 winners are ranked according to revenue growth against their industry peers, as well as overall growth.

Of particular note, ICIC inducted 14 businesses into the Inner City 100 “Hall of Fame” as an homage to these companies’ successive growth achievements of five or more years. Since this is NFF’s 5th appearance on the Inner City 100 list, we’ve now become a member of the distinguished Hall of Fame.

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.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for both business success and driving economic growth within the DC Metro area,” said Hess Fatemi, CEO of NFF. “Since its inception in 1996, it’s been a part of NFF’s mission to create an environment where people can grow and pursue their careers while delivering extraordinary services to our clients. We’re excited to continue to grow NFF to be an even more rewarding place for people to work, and deliver solutions bridging the gap between traditional networking and emerging technologies.”
