About the business:
Hillard Heintze provides security and investigative services primarily to Fortune 500 companies and governments. It was founded in 2004 by two former law enforcement professionals: Arnette Heintze, former head of the Chicago Secret Service, and Terry Hillard, the former superintendent of Chicago's police department. Each partner put in a mere $3,000 to start the business. The investment was a sound one. The company brought in an impressive $6.9 million in revenue in 2010.
This year's Inner City 100 companies have fought off a sluggish economy through a combination of smart investment and savvy strategy. Here's how they are doing it.
