About Florida Companies to Watch

Join us on Saturday, February 10, 2018 for the seventh annual Florida Companies to Watch awards program. Over the last six years, 300 companies from throughout Florida have been recognized at our elite event, which will be held at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa, FL.  Join the movement… Support the winners… Attend the event… Florida Companies to Watch celebrates growing second-stage companies headquartered in Florida. Companies to Watch was developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation as a unique way to recognize and honor second-stage companies that demonstrate high performance in the marketplace with innovative strategies and processes, making them “worth watching”. Presented by GrowFL, in association with Edward Lowe Foundation, Florida Companies to Watch is an awards program like no other. We all have a compelling story to tell. We encourage you to tell yours!
