AcuteCare Telemedicine Selected as Gator 100 Honoree

When the University Of Florida (UF) sought to recognize and celebrate the achievements of university alumni, they reached out to their Warrington College of Business Administration (WCBA) and the Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation (CEI). The collaboration produced the Gator 100, an annual programGator100_HonoreeBadge_CMYK designed to recognize and rank the fastest growing, Gator alumni-owned or led businesses from around the world each year. Candidates are nominated from all graduates of the University of Florida. “CEI is excited to honor top Gator alumni entrepreneurs from schools and colleges across the UF campus,” said Nola Miyasaki, Director of Gator StartUps. “The Gator100 exemplifies one of CEI’s core values of contributing to a vibrant culture of entrepreneurship across our campus and the Gator Nation.”

In addition, the alumnus must have founded the company and been active as a member of the most senior management team. “The Gator100 is an important initiative that recognizes entrepreneurial excellence,” explains Dr. Michael Morris, the Academic Director of the entrepreneurship program at UF. “It is open to any and all companies founded or run by Gator alumni, and recognizes those who are achieving growth, innovating, and making a difference in their communities.”
