World Housing Solution, Inc. Named as One of GrowFL’s 50 Companies to Watch in 2018
World Housing Solution Inc., has earned a place on its list of 50 statewide companies expected to see significant growth over the next several years. These 50 companies ere 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.
World Housing Solution’s management team, competitive market position and strong community involvement were among several factors that put them in contention for the award. “We are so proud to be among so many great companies in the state of Florida”, said Ron Ben-Zeev, founder and CEO of World Housing Solution. “At World Housing Solution, we pride ourselves on focusing on the customer’s problems, rather than pushing out solutions that we think are the best, and that has helped us grow more than we ever thought possible.” The 50 companies named the 2018 Florida Companies to Watch generated nearly one billion dollars 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 yearly job growth. “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 dollars and 100 million dollars 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. “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.
