GrowFL Membership

Created in 2009 as an economic development program, GrowFL is driven by one goal: Cultivate second-stage growth companies across the state. These companies are the backbone of Florida’s economy and the definition of economic growth and prosperity. Leaders in the second-stage are almost universally supportive of their colleagues, but often lack the direct connection with them. GrowFL creates an ecosystem of like-minded, entrepreneurial leaders to support next-level growth.
