MAVS 100

Mavs 100

MAVS 100 is designed to honor the 100 fastest growing UTA alumni-owned or UTA alumni-led businesses. Nominated companies are asked to only provide top-level information (not full financials) about their company so that an independent accounting firm can rank the nominees and identify the 100 fastest growing companies. The nominated companies are ranked by percentage of compound annual growth in sales or revenues (net of returns), over a three-year period (ex. 2017 to 2019). The 100 fastest growing organizations will be named to the MAVS 100 each year. Honorees are recognized each spring during an invitation only Awards Dinner.
