GROWFL MAKES AN IMPACT

GrowFL is driven by one goal – to cultivate scalable second-stage growth companies across the state. Second-stage companies are the backbone of Florida’s economy and the definition of economic growth and prosperity. GrowFL, through our nationally certified team of experts, provides proven methods to help overcome unique challenges facing second-stage companies as they grow. As the only statewide organization focused exclusively on second-stage and emerging second-stage growth companies, GrowFL’s philosophy is to identify, serve and celebrate these companies that have the best potential to contribute to Florida’s economy. Second-stage companies are identified as somewhere in between a startup and a large firm and have one basic commonality – they are poised for growth. Focusing our efforts on these companies means strengthening the economy of the region and supporting the entrepreneurs who live among us.

Oftentimes I have wished for a ‘How to’ manual on how to run my company. As leaders we must be constantly learning and adapting to current market conditions. GrowFL provides me unparalleled access to fellow leaders and the ability to see company management and leadership through another’s perspective. It is the best thing I have found to continuously improve and learn from my peers.
