Two UF College of Nursing alumnae were honored February 1-2 as 2018 Gator100 elite entrepreneurs at a reception and awards luncheon as part of the University of Florida Alumni Association’s annual Gator100 honor roll.
Alumni from the University of Florida have created and guided some of the most innovative and profitable businesses in the nation and world, and the College of Nursing is proud that Jennifer Ruland (BSN 1998) and Shari Costantini (BSN 1988) were recognized in the 2018 Gator100 for their entrepreneurial efforts.
Each year, the Gator100 program recognizes the 100 fastest-growing, Gator-owned or led businesses in the world, and serves as the University of Florida’s premier entrepreneurial awards program. The Gator100 serves not only as a setting where UF’s elite entrepreneurs can gather and share their talents and wisdom, but as an inspiration to fellow Gators to be a part of this exclusive group.
