Since the inaugural LSU100 event in 2011, five companies have made the list all eight years. These exemplary organizations include Global Data Vault; Horizon Wealth Management; Lipsey’s, LLC; SGS Petroleum Service Corporation; and USA Technologies, Inc. 

The LSU100 is a highly competitive program that identifies, recognizes and celebrates the 100 fastest growing Tiger-owned or Tiger-led businesses in the world. In addition to celebrating the success of the honorees, the LSU100 provides a forum to pass lessons on to the next generation of LSU entrepreneurs.

On behalf of Louisiana State University, LSU Executive Education hosts the event and serves as the primary point of contact for all operations and development. Postlethwaite & Netterville is the 2018 LSU100 accounting firm partner and the Tiger Athletic Foundation, LSU Foundation, and LSU’s Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute are LSU sponsors of the event. The LSU Alumni Association serves as the Entertainment and Digital Media sponsor for the program and Gatorworks provides the LSU100 website. 

The nomination period for the 2019 LSU100 will open early next year. The 2019 gala will be held at L’Auberge Casino Hotel on November 22, 2019.  More details will be announced via www.lsu100.com.
