Five Missouri Companies Among 100 Fastest Growing Inner City Businesses In U.S.

Five Missouri companies recently ranked among the nation’s 100 fastest-growing inner city businesses, according to a new report published by Fortune. Missouri companies on the list include Vazquez Commercial Contracting, LLC (6th), and DuBois Consultants Inc. (94th) in Kansas City, as well as GadellNet Consulting Services, LLC (32nd), Warehouse of Fixtures (70th) and Dynalabs (91st) in St. Louis.

The Fortune report, released earlier this month, uses ranking by the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC), founded by Harvard Business School Professor Michael Porter in 1994. The ICIC defines inner cities as core urban areas with higher unemployment and poverty rates and lower median incomes than their surrounding metropolitan statistical areas. Companies were ranked by revenue growth over the five-year period between 2013 and 2017.
