About the Gator100

Albert & Alberta Statues

Alumni from the University of Florida have created and guided some of the most innovative and profitable businesses in the nation and the world.

The UF Alumni Association, in partnership with the UF Entrepreneurship & Innovation Center, is privileged to recognize these amazing entrepreneurs with the Gator100.

The Gator100 honors the 100 fastest-growing, Gator-owned or Gator-led businesses in the world. The Gator100 serves not only as a setting where UF's elite entrepreneurs can gather and share their talents and wisdom, but as an inspiration to fellow Gators to be a part of this exclusive group.
