University of Georgia Alumni Association Recognizes Success of Top 100 Graduate-Owned Companies
Jackrabbit Technologies, leading provider of online class management software for youth activities centers, was recently recognized as the 88th fastest growing among companies owned or operated by University of Georgia alumni in The 2017 Bulldog 100 Showcase. The University’s Alumni Association hosted the annual Bulldog 100 event honoring entrepreneurial alumni on February 4, 2017 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. This is the 7th consecutive year that Jackrabbit has been ranked in the list.
“The Bulldog 100 brings together companies from across the country and business sectors who have the UGA educational experience as well as entrepreneurial passions in common,” comments Jackrabbit’s President, Mark Mahoney, who graduated from the Terry School of Business with a BBA in 1983. “I consider recognition as part of this group a distinct honor and see it as an incredible opportunity to grow in the midst of some of our country’s brightest business minds.”
More than 490 nominations were submitted for the 2017 Bulldog 100. To be considered for the program, an organization must have been in business for at least five years, had revenues of $100,000 or more for the calendar year 2013, and be owned or operated by a former UGA student who owns at least 50% of company or is the CEO, President or Managing Partner. The program recognizes the fastest-growing businesses regardless of size by focusing on a three-year compounded annual growth rate average.
Since its inception in 2010, the Bulldog 100 has recognized 432 companies across 224 industries. This year’s honorees averaged a compounded growth rate of 44% proving that entrepreneurial companies are the heartbeat of the U.S. economy.
Information about the Bulldog 100 program and a complete list of the Class of 2017 is available on the UGA Alumni Association website.
