Seminole 100

Jim Moran Institute COVID-19 Update

The Jim Moran Institute will begin implementing our in-person Reopening Plan on August 1, 2020. We will follow the guidance of college, university, local, state, and federal officials in each of our satellite locations to maintain the health and safety of our clients, staff, volunteers and guests. The fluidity of the situation is likely to require continuing flexibility. All program schedules and formats are subject to change and will be revised as needed.

Alumni from Florida State University are responsible for some of the most innovative and profitable businesses in the world. The College of Business' Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship, the Florida State University Alumni Association and EY are proud to recognize these incredible entrepreneurs through the Seminole 100 awards program.

Seminole 100 recognizes the 100 fastest-growing FSU alumni-owned or alumni-led businesses at a celebration on FSU's campus each year, during which each company learns their numerical ranking and receives their award. This event honors FSU's entrepreneurs and allows them to share valuable business insights with each other. Honorees and their businesses will also receive increased publicity and visibility via national, local and industry media exposure.
