Game Changers at Beast Code

Last Saturday Beast Code, in coordination with the HSU Educational Foundation, hosted more than 20 local elementary, middle, and high school students. Each student got a tour of the company and was able to ask employees questions about our culture, the work we do, and what path they took to the role they are working in today.

Afterwards, with the help our friendly R2D2 robots, the students were able to learn some programming. The goal was to get their team’s robot through the maze while also collecting “coins” along the way.

We hope everyone had a wonderful time and appreciate all of our volunteers who made the event possible. Every student got a robot to take home afterwards!

Beast Code, LLC Among Second-Stage Businesses to Earn Prestigious Award

Beast Code, LLC was selected from more than 50 nominees for Florida Companies to WatchSM, a statewide program managed by economic development group GrowFL, in association with the Edward Lowe Foundation. Beast Code, among 50 other statewide companies, are expected to see significant growth over the next several years.

Beast Code’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.

“We are honored to be among those outstanding businesses selected as a Florida Companies to Watch awardee. Beast Code was founded to transcend tradition and foster innovation, receiving this award is extremely validating for what we are doing at our company,” says Matthew Zimmermann, Beast Code’s CEO.

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.

“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.

 

Companies named to the list will be officially recognized February 9, 2019 at the Straz Performing Arts Center in Tampa, FL.  Visit www.growfl.com/flctw18/about-flctw/ for more information.
