Click here to open and save the 2017 Fast 56 application

The USF Fast 56 program identifies, recognizes, and celebrates the success of the world’s 56 fastest growing Bull-owned or Bull-led businesses. Last year, companies from nine states and three countries were presented this prestigious award by USF President Judy Genshaft at an evening gala held in their honor.

The USF Alumni Association is proud to partner with independent accounting firm Cherry Bekaert LLP (CB) on this program. All applications are sent to and reviewed by CB, who then calculates the percentage of cumulative annual growth in revenue for the company’s three most recent 12-month reporting periods. Documents should solely be sent to CB as directed on page four of the application.

In order to be considered for the 2017 USF Fast 56, please complete the application and return it to CB by Friday, January 27, 2017. We encourage you to visit the criteria page to ensure your company meets the award requirements and to review the application carefully to ensure you follow all instructions.

If you have any questions concerning the USF Fast 56 program or application process please contact Katie Giglio at kgiglio@usf.edu or 813-974-2903.
