Florida State University unveiled the 2019 Seminole 100 during a ceremony hosted by the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship, the FSU Alumni Association and professional services firm EY on Saturday, March 2.

The 2nd Annual Seminole 100 Celebration at University Center Club in Doak Campbell Stadium recognized the 100 fastest-growing businesses owned or managed by FSU alumni.

The 2019 Seminole 100 included a wide range of businesses across the country. More than 75 are located in Florida.

EY verified information from each company and ranked the businesses based on a compound annual growth rate.
