The UGA Alumni Association has released the 2016 Bulldog 100. This annual program recognizes the fastest-growing businesses owned or operated by UGA alumni. Nearly 400 nominations were submitted for the 2016 list.
The 2016 Bulldog 100 includes businesses of all sizes and from industries such as veterinary medicine, IT consulting and pest control. Several areas of the country are represented, including companies from New York and California. Of the 100 businesses, 80 are located within Georgia, and only two businesses have made the list all seven years: Mom Corps and Vino Venue/Atlanta Wine School.
The Bulldog 100 honorees will be celebrated Jan. 30 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. The evening will begin with a reception, followed by dinner and the awards ceremony. Registration, which is open to the public, will be available by mid-December at alumni.uga.edu/b100.
