07/17/2012 11:39 AM

BATON ROUGE – The LSU Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute, or SEI, has announced the nomination process is now open for the third annual LSU 100: Fastest Growing Tiger Businesses.

 

According to SEI Associate Director Jarett Rodriguez, the institute began accepting nominations yesterday.

 

“This really has been a celebration the past two years, and we are looking forward to next year with great anticipation,” Rodriguez said. “We have been amazed at the participation in the first two LSU 100 events, and there is no doubt the third event will surpass both of those in terms of interest.”

 

The LSU 100 is a highly competitive annual program that honors the fastest growing companies owned or operated by former LSU students. In addition to celebrating the success of the honorees, the LSU 100 provides a forum to pass lessons on to the next generation of LSU entrepreneurs.

 

Companies honored must meet the following requirements for inclusion in the LSU 100:

  • Have been in business for five years or more
  • Have had verifiable revenues of $100,000 for 2009
  • Have a former LSU student as owner of at least 50 percent of the company or as chief executive officer, president or managing partner
  • Operate in a manner consistent with the mission of LSU and SEI
