Top Tigers recognizes the fastest-growing companies founded, owned, or led by Auburn University alumni. Nominees are evaluated based on revenue growth and their ability to operate in a manner consistent with the Auburn Creed. They are categorized by company size – Small, Medium, and Large – and then ranked according to growth. All companies on the Top Tigers list are recognized at the luncheon and the top 3 are revealed during the awards ceremony.

In 2018, Airship ranked #1 in the small companies for revenue growth.
