To be honored by those same universities we owe our success to is humbling to say the least.
Bryan, TX (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
JB Knowledge Technologies, Inc., maker of SmartBidNet and SmartCompliance business solutions, has been honored as one of the 2013 LSU 100: Fastest Growing Tiger Businesses. JBKnowledge is only the second company to be named to both the LSU 100 and Texas A&M University’s Aggie 100. Father and son duo, Jim and James Benham, started the company in 2001 and have been recognized by their respective universities over the past several years.
LSU alum, Jim Benham successfully pioneered four companies before starting JBKnowledge with son, James, a graduate of Texas A&M University. Based upon its compounded annual growth rate from 2009-2011, JBKnowledge ranked 24th among the 2013 LSU 100 honorees.
"Since receiving my degree at LSU, I've had the pleasure of leading several successful companies and leading one with my son has been the icing on the cake. I'm proud of this great university and the values it instilled in me, and even prouder to pass those values on to my son. To be recognized in the LSU 100 is an honor. I have no doubt that JBKnowledge will continue to make the institutions that helped build it very proud," stated Jim Benham.
“JB Knowledge Technologies, Inc. is a successful Tiger-led business that we are proud to recognize in the 2013 LSU 100,” said Lisa O’Beirne, Director of Development for SEI. “We look forward to their continued growth and involvement with entrepreneurship programs at LSU.”
The LSU 100 is hosted by the LSU Stephenson Entrepreneurship Institute (SEI), which is housed in the E. J. Ourso College of Business. Selection for the 2013 LSU 100 is a competitive process. Companies are measured individually on their compounded annual growth rate from 2009 through 2011 by Postlethwaite & Netterville, the independent accounting firm of the LSU 100.

In addition to being named to the LSU 100, JBKnowledge is a five-time winner of Texas A&M University’s Aggie 100, which is awarded to the fastest growing Aggie-owned or managed businesses in the world.
“We’re incredibly proud to join the ranks of the LSU 100. Since my dad and I started JBKnowledge 12 years ago, we have been driven by the values and skills granted to us by the fine institutions of Louisiana State University and Texas A&M University. To be honored by those same universities we owe our success to is humbling to say the least,” stated JBKnowledge President and CEO James Benham.
