TAP Innovations Receives LSU 100 Recognition

DALLAS, TX – TAP Innovations has earned a top 10 ranking on Louisiana State University's 2022 LSU 100 list of fastest growing LSU graduate-owned or led companies. Postlethwaite & Netterville calculated each company's compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the past three years to generate the ranking. In addition to celebrating the success of LSU graduates, the 12th annual LSU 100: Fastest Growing Tiger Businesses provides a forum to pass lessons on to the next generation of LSU entrepreneurs.


"Recognition on the LSU 100 list is a tremendous honor, and I am really proud of the hard work it took to get here from the entire TAP Innovations team," says John Ragsdale, LSU alum and TAP Innovations Founder CEO. "I look forward to celebrating with my fellow alumni at the awards gala and helping grow LSU's network of successful entrepreneurs. And, of course, preparing TAP Innovations for the 2023 nominations!"
