Celebrating Florida's top second-stage companies since 2011.

The most anticipated awards program of the year!

GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch is an annual awards celebration that recognizes second-stage companies headquartered in Florida for innovation, community involvement, leadership, and growth. Developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation, Companies to Watch is a unique way to honor the companies who demonstrate high performance in the marketplace with innovative strategies and processes, making them worth watching.  

Second-stage companies often go underrecognized, yet are the ones who have the most impact on our economy. As the only organization in the state committed exclusively to growing second-stage businesses, GrowFL is proud to honor and recognize those outstanding companies each year. Since 2011, 550 companies have been named GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch Honorees. 

Whether you are a company looking to apply, an organization nominating deserving business owners in your community, interested in sponsoring or attending the 12th Annual awards – everyone can take part in the celebration!

The 12th Annual Awards Celebration will take place in February 2023.
