Benseron Selected One of 50 Florida Companies to Watch

Entrepreneurial styles, corporate cultures give these second-stage companies competitive advantages

Naples, Florida  9/12/2018 (PRWeb)

Benseron Hospitality is pleased to announce the 50 statewide companies expected to see significant growth over the next several years. Benseron Hospitality was selected from more than 500 nominees for Florida Companies to WatchSM, a statewide program managed by economic development group GrowFL, in association with the Edward Lowe Foundation.

Benseron Hospitality’s management team, competitive market position and strong community involvement were among several factors that put them in contention for the award.

“These stand-out companies are all led by entrepreneurs, and have demonstrated their capacity and intent to grow,” said Dr. Tom O’Neal, GrowFL executive director.  “They also all have critical intellectual property or a niche position that gives them a competitive edge in their markets,” he said.

“Technical innovation is key to bour growth in the industry and international markets,” suggests Onur Haytac, Benseron CEO. “With our flagship product, Linga POS, we’re building an all-in-one platform that can leverage customer data in new ways for businesses to deliver the right marketing, service, and personalization to customers.”

The full list of the 50 Companies to Watch can be see here: https://www.growfl.com/flctw18/about-flctw/

 

 “This is a strong group of companies that deserve this special recognition given annually to the state’s top second stage companies,” said Dr. Chris Morton, GrowFL Chairman of the GrowFL Advisory Board, CEO of NanoPhotonica and a 2015 Florida Companies to Watch honoree.

Second-stage companies are defined as those with 6 to 150 full-time employees and between $750,000 and $100 million in annual revenue. There are many programs and incubators promoting start-up businesses; GrowFL is the only Florida program that focuses exclusively on second-stage companies.

The 50 companies named the 2018 Florida Companies to Watch generated nearly $1 billion in revenue and added nearly 1,000 jobs between 2014 and 2017.

Together, the companies project a 50 percent increase in revenue and 40 percent increase in job growth in 2018 compared to 2017.

Companies named to the list will be officially recognized February 9, 2019 at the Straz Performing Arts Center in Tampa, FL.  Tickets are on sale now for the awards ceremony.

Benseron Hospitality Among Finalists for GrowFL Companies to Watch in 2018

Benseron Hospitality Among Second-Stage Businesses Competing to Earn Prestigious Honor.

Benseron Hospitality was among the first round of 2018 Florida Companies to Watch finalists recently announced by GrowFL. The awards event – now in its eighth 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 a candidate pool of 134 growing second-stage businesses, the finalists collectively represented $518 million in annual revenue and employed 2,743 full-time equivalent employees in 2017.

“We are happy to see the recognition of hard work by our passionate team,” says Benseron CEO, Onur Haytac. “Our sights are set very high, and we push ourselves to redefine the industry for point of sale platforms.”

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, which contributed to Florida’s ranking of 24 on the 2018 Kauffman Index of Growth Entrepreneurship. According to this report, “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.

Developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation, 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. In addition to evaluating past growth and projected success, applicant companies are judged according to their special strengths and impact in their markets, communities and within the state – thus deeming them “worth watching.”

The winners will be announced in MID-September. The 2018 honorees will be celebrated at the awards ceremony February 9th at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa, FL.
