  • Founded in 1969 as the Inner City Fund, ICF got its start as a venture capital firm with a mission to finance inner-city businesses in the Washington, D.C area of the United States. C.D. Lester, a former Tuskegee Airman, was our first president and was joined in the firm by three U.S. Department of Defense analysts. Our consulting business proved more successful than our investments and in 1972 the firm was reorganized as a consulting firm and renamed ICF Incorporated.
