LSU SEI to Honor Bar-Z as a Member of 2013 LSU 100
Bar-Z is honored to announce it has once again been named to the LSU 100 List of fastest-growing businesses owned by former Tigers.
Bar-Z has been selected as one of the 2013 LSU 100 honorees based upon its percentage of growth from 2009-2011. The LSU 100 is hosted by the LSU Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute (SEI), which is housed in the E. J. Ourso College of Business. The complete list of 2013 honorees is available at www.lsu100.com.
“We are excited and honored to be recognized for the second time by the LSU 100 for our strong growth as a Tiger owned / Tiger led business” said Bar-Z CFO Carrie Little and LSU alumnus. “LSU was the spark for learning that has continued throughout my life. Whether learning in the classroom or in real world experiences, you should never stop educating yourself.”
“BarZ Adventures is a successful Tiger-led business that we are proud to recognize in the 2013 LSU 100,” said Lisa O’Beirne, Director of Development for SEI. “We look forward to their continued growth and involvement with entrepreneurship programs at LSU.”
