ICV Partners was founded in 1998 as "Inner City Ventures." Our goal was to create a world-class, ethnic minority-owned private investment company.
Over a decade later, ICV is a leading private investment firm with over $440 million in capital. ICV is focused on partnering with management teams of companies in the lower end of the middle market. ICV invests in leading companies with sales of $25 - $250 million. ICV's principals have crafted a strong track record, investing more than $235 million in 19 companies.
ICV also boasts special partnerships with two institutional co-sponsors -- American Securities and the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC). These sponsors provide invaluable resources such as deal flow, institutional expertise, back-office support, best practices and industry connections.
