A-LIGN is honored to be recognized for the second consecutive year on Florida State University (FSU)’s annual Seminole 100 list. Presented jointly by the Florida State University, Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship, the FSU Alumni Entrepreneurship and Inc. Magazine, the Seminole 100 recognizes and celebrates the fastest-growing U.S. businesses owned and operated by prestigious FSU alumni. The 2019 Seminole 100 list includes businesses of all industries located across the United States, with seventy-seven businesses located in Florida.
“Once again, A-LIGN is proud to earn a spot on the Seminole 100 list. Over the last year, we’ve witnessed significant growth and are proud of what we have accomplished. At Florida State University, Gene and I learned the values that would later influence our company’s values – be all in, commit to quality, innovate constantly and do the right thing, always. We are proud to imbue our organization with those principles as we achieve new milestones and work towards our 20th anniversary in 2019,” said A-LIGN CEO Scott Price.
Earning a spot on the Seminole 100 list is another significant honor in a year of growth and recognition for A-LIGN. Earlier this year, A-LIGN raised $54.4 million in capital from FTV Capital. Other notable achievements in 2018 include being named one of Consulting Magazine’s Top Small Firms to Work For, listing at #30 on Florida’s Fast 100 and earning a spot on the Inc. 5000 as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies for its second consecutive year.
“All of this couldn’t be possible without Florida State University, where Scott and I met,” said A-LIGN President Gene Geiger. “We are incredibly proud to be recognized on the Seminole 100 and hope that our story can serve as an inspiration for future FSU Alumni.”
A-LIGN will be formally recognized at the Seminole 100 awards ceremony on March 2, 2019.
“As we enter our second year of recognizing entrepreneurial excellence with Seminole 100, we can say without a doubt Florida State University’s entrepreneurial spirit is thriving,” said Melissa Roberts, managing director of the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship. “We look forward to recognizing the FSU alumni who are leading high-growth businesses and delivering cutting-edge solutions to help make our world a better place.”
