The LSU 100: Fastest Growing Tiger Businesses identifies, recognizes and celebrates the 100 fastest growing LSU-owned or LSU-led businesses in the world. The LSU100 not only celebrates their success, it also provides a forum to pass lessons to the next generation of LSU entrepreneurs.

Criteria

Who can be a part of the LSU 100?

The LSU 100 celebrates the success of former LSU students and recognizes the impact of LSU on the local, regional, and national economies. Companies are confidentially ranked by Postlethwaite & Netterville by the companies’ compounded annual growth rate.

This year, to catch our data up to the program year, we will use the highest growth rate for the years 2012 – 2014 or 2013 – 2015. First time applicants will submit financial support for 2012 – 2015, and prior year applicants will submit financial support for 2014 – 2015.
