Seriously Successful Seminoles
Celebration counts down nation's fastest-growing alumni-owned companies.
This past August, FSU and the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship in the College of Business rolled out the inaugural Seminole 100 as an alphabetical listing of the nation’s fastest-growing businesses owned by FSU alumni. As a group, the businesses were impressive. They employed more than 12,000 people and generated $1.6 billion in total revenue. But the question of how they stacked up against each other was not answered until the evening of March 3. During the Seminole 100 Celebration, a gala co-sponsored by JMI and the FSU Alumni Association, the numerical ranking of Seminole 100 businesses, based on their growth rates, was counted down to reveal Blue Air Training’s No. 1 spot.
