Investor FAQs

When was ICF founded?

ICF was founded in 1969 as the Inner City Fund, a venture capital firm whose mission was to finance inner-city businesses. The firm's consulting business proved more successful than its investments, and in 1972, it was reorganized as a consulting firm and renamed ICF Incorporated. In 2006, the company was renamed ICF International to reflect the firm's growing geographic presence and increased scope of its service offerings from advisory services through implementation and improvement. In September 2016, the firm was renamed ICF as part of its rebranding effort. The new brand reinforces ICF’s identity as a trusted services provider in key markets ranging from energy and energy efficiency to cybersecurity, health and social programs, aviation, and marketing services.
