GrowFL Announces 2020 Florida Companies to Watch Finalists
Omega Medical Imaging Among Second-Stage Businesses
Competing to Earn Prestigious Honor
(Sanford, FL) Omega Medical Imaging LLC was among the first round of the 2020 Florida Companies to Watch finalists
recently announced by GrowFL. The awards event – now in its tenth year – honors impressive second-stage companies
from throughout the state for developing valuable products and services, creating quality jobs, enriching communities,
and broadening new industries throughout Florida. The 2020 GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch awards celebration is
brought to you by Nperspective CFO & Strategic Services, in association with the Edward Lowe Foundation.
Together, the 2020 GrowFL Florida Companies to Watch Finalists represent nearly 3,000 jobs and generate $670 million
in revenue. These companies, all of which are “worth watching,” anticipate a growth of 13 percent in revenue and 23
percent in employment by the end of 2020.
“Our focus of providing solutions for interventional medical procedures that best help our customers meet the
Quadruple Aim of Healthcare drives us every day. Partnering with clinicians & hospital systems worldwide, we are the
only provider of high-quality AI image-guided X-ray systems that raise the expectations of radiation safety for patients,
physicians and staff. We are honored to be included on the shortlist of companies doing amazing things in our
community and appreciate the support and recognition that the GrowFL organization consistently provides”. Brian
Fleming, President and CEO.
The finalists were selected from more than 400 nominations and are now in the running to be named a 2020 GrowFL
Florida Companies to Watch Honoree. If selected as an honoree, these exemplary second-stage companies will join the
450 honorees that have been recognized since 2011.
“We applaud these first-round finalists who have proved themselves to be stand out companies in the state. They have
and continue to demonstrate the resiliency and tenacity that comes along with being an entrepreneur. We know this
year has not been easy, so we’re excited to recognize our states admirable business owners and their teams. I have a
feeling they’re just getting started,” says Dr. Tom O’Neal, GrowFL Founder.
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.” GrowFL 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.
Companies to Watch was developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation as a unique way to recognize and honor second-stage
companies that demonstrate high performance in the marketplace with innovative strategies and processes. 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 2020 honorees will be recognized on November 12, 2020 at 6 pm during a live broadcast from Orlando, Florida. For
