Georgia Grinders was Honored at Bulldog 100, AGAIN!
Georgia Grinders is proudly owned and founded by UGA Alumni Jaime Foster (BSA ’99)! We are extremely honored to have been selected for the Bulldog 100 for the second year in a row. The Bulldog 100 celebrates the 100 fastest-growing businesses owned or operated by UGA alumni each year. The financials of 577 companies were analyzed by an outside firm, Warren Averett and we are proud to make the top 100 again. This celebration is an amazing way to help deepen business networks, collaborate with others, and to overall help keep each other inspired and motivated. Those selected to be a part of the Bulldog 100 network are extremely committed to their ideas, their teams, and their industries. They exemplify the power of a hard earned degree from a fabulous institution such as the University of Georgia.
