“What an honor to be recognized as a GrowFL finalist,” says Bill Daubmann, president and founder of MY Shower Door and D3 Glass. “We have seen continuous growth even during challenging times and I believe it is due to our commitment to our customers and our community, our dedicated team and our ability to adjust and innovate. We started as a shower door showroom and have grown into custom glass manufacturing and installation services across the country. I couldn’t be prouder of our team and their dedication to our clients and the community.”

The GrowFL finalists were selected from around 300 nominations across Florida. Finalists will now be in the running to be named a GrowFL company to watch honoree. If a company is announced as an honoree, it will then join the ranks of 550 second-stage companies across Florida that have been recognized since 2011.

The award is a way to 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 Florida.

“This group of business owners represents the remarkable second-stage businesses operating across the state of Florida,” says Jennifer Taylor, president and CEO of GrowFL. “They demonstrate the agility, perseverance and innovation needed to take their business to the next level. GrowFL is proud to support Florida’s second-stage entrepreneurs and help to play a part in recognizing their success.”

To qualify for the award, companies must have between six and 150 employees. Companies must also have revenue between $750,000 and $100 million in 2021.
