We often hear that the area doesn’t have a Fortune 500 company, but Baltimore wasn’t left off another business list focused on cities.
In all, four companies made the Fortune 100 Inner City list, which ranks the country’s fastest-growing urban businesses. The rankings, which were handled by the nonprofit Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, was announced in a ceremony at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston.
Bithenergy topped the list. The Mt. Vernon-based renewable energy company recently won a contract to build a solar power plant at Fort Campbell in Kentucky. CEO Robert Wallace, who also runs Bithgroup Technologies and Entreteach Learning Systems, was also recognized for promoting small and minority-owned businesses.
Digitally-focused marketing firm Planit was ranked 42nd on the list ahead of expected growth and a move to a new office on Key Highway.
PW Feats, which produces events for companies, nonprofits and universities, ranked at No. 68.
SmartLogic rounded out the Baltimore companies on the list at No. 80. The Canton-based software development firm posted big growth over five years. CEO Yair Flicker is a Baltimore’s tech leader who is always working to bring the community together.-30-
