        The Raymond J. Harbert College of Business is seeking nominations for company recognition and individual awards that will be presented as part of the second Auburn University Entrepreneurship Summit on Friday, April 22, 2016.

        The summit consists of two events that will recognize established and emerging business leaders and innovators from Auburn University’s degree-granting colleges and schools.

        Presented in partnership with Business Alabama magazine and Warren Averett CPAs and Advisors, the Top Tigers awards program will honor the fastest-growing companies founded, owned or led (CEO, president, CFO, VP, etc.) by Auburn University alumni. In order to qualify, companies must meet the following standards:

        • Companies must be founded, owned or led by an Auburn alumnus
        • Companies must be in business for at least four full years
        • Companies’ revenues must exceed $250,000 by the end of the evaluation period (fiscal year 2014)
        • Companies must operate in a manner consistent with the Auburn Creed

        Nominations for Top Tigers, and for individual awards presented as part of the Auburn University Entrepreneur Hall of Fame gala, can be submitted online at:
