The 2023 LSU 100, which ranks fastest growing LSU-owned companies, has been released

Dallas-based TAP Innovations has once again topped the list of the LSU 100, an annual ranking of the fastest-growing businesses around the world that are owned or led by LSU graduates.


LSU released the 2023 ranking Saturday. TAP Innovations also held the No. 1 spot in 2022.


TAP Innovations helps businesses become more efficient by automating manual paperwork and reducing spreadsheet reliance. Its founder and CEO, John Ragsdale, earned a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from LSU in 1994.

LSU also unveiled its Roaring 20, a ranking by revenue of the top 20 businesses that applied for the Top 100. Turner Industries, a Baton Rouge industrial construction corporation, was first on the 2023 Roaring 20, holding onto the same perch it held last year.


Turner President and CEO Stephen Toups earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and a master of business administration degree from LSU.


Eleven companies were ranked on both the LSU 100 and the Roaring 20: Audubon Engineering Co. LLC, Grand Isle Shipyard, ISC Constructors LLC, Lyons Specialty Co. LLC, MAPP LLC, Martin Sustainable Resources LLC — RoyOMartin, Performance Contractors Inc., Provident Resources Group Inc., PSC Group, Window World of Baton Rouge and WJ Palmisano LLC.
