Seven FACS alumni have been named to the 2019 Bulldog 100 list of the fastest-growing businesses owned or operated by UGA alumni, as compiled by the University of Georgia Alumni Association.
Unveiled on Wednesday, the 2019 Bulldog 100, includes businesses of all sizes and from industries such as real estate, dining, technology and retail.
Companies are based as far north as New York and as far west as California. Of the 100 businesses, 80 are located within Georgia. More than 564 nominations were submitted for the 2019 list.
“The Bulldog 100 program provides us with the opportunity to applaud the outstanding achievements of our graduates, broaden networks and inspire each other in our shared commitment,” said Meredith Johnson, executive director of the UGA Alumni Association. “These alumni are leading the way in business and building better communities.”
Business applicants were measured by their compounded annual growth rate during a three-year period. The Atlanta office of Warren Averett CPAs and Advisors verified the information submitted by each company. On Jan. 26, the UGA Alumni Association will host an event to celebrate the Bulldog 100 and count down the ranked list to the No. 1 business.
