GrowFL Announces 9th Annual Florida Companies to Watch Finalists
Urban E Recycling Among Second-Stage Businesses
Competing to Earn Prestigious Honor
(Tampa, FL) Urban E Recycling was among the first round of the 2019 Florida Companies to Watch finalists recently announced by GrowFL. The awards event – now in its ninth year – honors 50 select second-stage companies from throughout the state for developing valuable products and services, creating quality jobs, enriching communities, and broadening new industries throughout Florida. Chosen from 224 growing second-stage participants from throughout, Florida, this year’s applicants had a total revenue of $596 million and over 3,000 employees.
We are proud to be included in the final round in the Florida Companies to Watch; a program that supports and promotes Florida businesses.
The Florida Companies To Watch program consists of two rounds of selections. Finalists now advance to the second round, where they will be further evaluated based on their performance in the marketplace, innovative products, services or processes, philanthropy and empowered employees.
“We applaud these first round finalists who have shown how they stand out in their regions as innovative business leaders, going to the next level to grow their companies. They are true rock stars,” says Dr. Tom O’Neal, GrowFL Executive Director.
The Finalists represent a unique group of scalable, high-growth enterprises that are already located within Florida. These high growth enterprises are an important segment of our economy and their numbers have been steadily increasing. According to the Kauffman Foundation, “entrepreneurship is not a monolithic phenomenon, and it includes many moving parts. Creating new businesses is a different economic activity from running small businesses, which in turn is different from growing businesses.” Florida Companies to Watch recognizes the different approach needed to successfully grow and scale a business and celebrates those that are working to achieve this goal. -MOREContact: DELL RABINOWITZ email@example.com 813-966-4702 5630 E POWHATAN AVE, TAMPA, FLORIDA 33610 PH: 813-512-6998 EPA ID #FLR000214049 Developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation, GrowFL’s Florida Companies to Watch is a distinguished awards program specifically designed to seek out second-stage businesses from a wide range of industries representing all areas of the state, not just those in major metropolitan areas.
