Name: International Computer Programs, Inc. (ICP)
Sector: Media and Communications

Description
    Lawrence A. (Larry) Welke started ICP in Indianapolis, IN in 1967 with two partners and a total capital investment of $750. The objective was to publish a catalog of software packages available for sale which would be sold by subscription to data processing managers. His two partners dropped out very quickly when subscription sales were slow to develop but Welke persevered and the ICP Directory became an extremely successful publication relied on by hundreds of software product vendors as a major vehicle for getting information about their products into the hands of their customers. In 1971, Welke began the annual Million Dollar Awards ceremonies which recognized successful software products and was instrumental in bringing credibility to the emerging software products industry.
