GrowFL is pleased to announce this year’s 50 Florida Companies to Watch honorees, a statewide competition that identifies companies expected to see significant growth over the next several years. Presented by GrowFL, in association with the Edward Lowe Foundation, this awards program is like no other.
The GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch awards program – now in its ninth year – honors 50 select second-stage companies from throughout Florida for developing valuable products and services, creating quality jobs, enriching communities, and broadening new industries throughout Florida. Chosen from 500 growing second-stage nominations from throughout, Florida, the 50 companies named as the 2019 Florida Companies to Watch honorees generated nearly $1 billion in revenue and added over 900 jobs between 2015 and 2018. Together, the honorees project a 35 percent increase in revenue and 37 percent increase in job growth in 2019 compared to 2018.
“These stand-out companies are all led by entrepreneurs, and have demonstrated their capacity and intent to grow,” said Dr. Tom O’Neal, GrowFL executive director. “They also all have critical intellectual property or a niche position that gives them a competitive edge in their markets,” he said.
