Texas A&M graduates continue to succeed in the business world. To honor their achievements, the Mays Business School's Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship will recognize the fastest-growing Aggie owned businesses.
A luncheon will be held Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in The Zone Club at Kyle Field.
96 of the 100 companies are expected to send more than 190 representatives to campus for the event, and 650 people are expected to attend the luncheon, including 100 current students.
"Texas A&M is proud of making the Aggie 100 an annual event to celebrate Aggies who have gone on to create businesses that are thriving not only in the U.S., but also around the world," says Richard Scruggs, executive director of the Mays Business School's Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship.
The Aggie 100 focuses on growth as an indicator of job creation, product acceptance and entrepreneurial vision. The Aggie 100 recipients were selected based on compound annual revenue growth rate for the 2004 to 2006 period.
While on campus, many Aggie 100 representatives will meet with more than 1,000 current students by speaking in classes and student organization meetings.
