We love a cause for celebration and here’s an exciting one. In September, Arizona State University’s Alumni Association named Design Pickle and our founder, Russ Perry, No. 2 on its annual Sun Devil 100 list. This recognition celebrates exceptional growth and achievement in entrepreneurship by Arizona State alumni (#forkem!), honoring those who propel entrepreneurial ideas forward.
Design Pickle was built with an entrepreneurial spirit of innovation, which is exactly what the Sun Devil 100 is all about!
To be considered, Sun Devil 100 applicants had to meet these requirements:
- Owned or led by ASU alumni
- In business for at least three years
- Revenues exceeding $250,000 in a calendar year
- Operate in a manner consistent with the ASU charter
And the numbers of this year’s honorees are impressive. The Sun Devil Class of 2020 includes 100 organizations represented by 127 ASU alums with a 2018 combined total revenue of $6.5 billion.
