GrowFL Membership

Strong leadership is critical for the success of any business and we know, often, how lonely it can be at the top. GrowFL Regional Chapters will become your go-to community of fellow second-stage business owners who will support you, encourage you and celebrate your success along the way.

Connect. Community. Growth. GrowFL Regional Chapter members immediately become part of an exclusive network of CEO’s who share the same entrepreneurial spirit, tenacity, and challenges. As a member, you can engage in conversations that are important to you and your business with others who, well – get it! You’ll be able to lean on other CEOs, GrowFL Advisory Board members, and Chapter Mentors; those who share GrowFL’s passion of serving as a catalyst for your company’s growth.

We Put the CEO at the Center of Everything We Do

Our Mission: Provide strategies, resources and support to second-stage companies for next level growth

GrowFL is driven by one goal: Cultivate second-stage growth companies across the state. GrowFL understands 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.

Do you meet one of these requirements?  We invite you to join!

Membership dues is $300 per person, unless otherwise noted.

      • The CEO, president or business owner serves as the primary member.
