Highland Homes Named to Gator100 List by University of Florida We have exciting news! Highland Homes was recently recognized on the University of Florida’s (UF) Gator100 list ranking the top 100 fastest-growing businesses in the world owned or led by University of Florida alumni! This is the second year the list has been issued by UF, and it is also the second time that Highland Homes has been recognized on the list.

Sponsored by the University of Florida (UF), the Warrington College of Business, and the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Center, the Gator100 recognizes entrepreneurial excellence. To generate the rankings, Ernst and Young calculated each company’s compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) over the past three years. With a CAGR of 43.95 percent, we are excited to announce that we were ranked as the No. 47 fastest-growing company in the world on the Gator100 list. That’s more than a 14 percent increase since last year, when we ranked 73 with a CAGR of 29.75 percent!
