Synapse Summit 2020: Innovation Around Every Corner
Grow Financial is proud to have sponsored the Synapse Florida Summit for the second year in a row. The Synapse Summit 2020 brought together hundreds of businesses, entrepreneurs and innovators to connect around the shared spirit of innovation for the state of Florida. As a company with roots in the Tampa Bay area, we valued the opportunity to connect with other companies with a shared vision for the future of Florida. Chip Caddell, Chief Information Officer at Grow and board member of Synapse Florida remarked, “Synapse is all about the local community helping each other succeed by sharing ideas, resources and information. It’s important to stay at the forefront of emerging technologies and the brightest ideas, which enrich the local environment of our state.”
With the latest innovations on display, from technology to a revolution in the orange juice industry—yes, orange juice!—Synapse taught us to remember that even for our simple, everyday things, innovation is around every corner.
This year, the Synapse Summit hosted more than 300 speakers for over 100 educational sessions. Grow leadership and team members participated in networking with other local businesses and attended informative sessions from various presenters, including Jane Castor, Mayor of Tampa, and Sara Blakely, Founder and CEO of Spanx.
Mayor Castor shared optimism for the future of the Tampa Bay area in a discussion about innovative ideas for the region. “We have a very unique, once-in-a-lifetime chance to create the world-class city that we know Tampa is, and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of that,” she stated. “What sets us apart?” Castor continued, “We want the best and brightest to look to Tampa as the place to be.” Attracting top talent is an area of focus for us at Grow. In 2019, we were recognized both nationally and in the Tampa Bay area as a Top Workplace, known for cultivating leadership, supporting diversity and channeling creativity among our team members.

At the final keynote speech of the Summit, entrepreneur Sara Blakely provided clear advice for all attendees, solopreneurs and business leaders alike: “One of the most important assets you have is your mindset. Work on it daily…Find your why.” Blakely reminded us of the transformational power of a positive outlook paired with a dedication to your mission. From the beginning, our mission at Grow has always been simple: we serve people, not profit. And for us, the possibilities are endless when we put people first.
How to Find Your Routing & Account Numbers
When you make a payment online, by phone or on a mobile device, you may be asked for our routing number and your checking account number. Credit unions and banks use these numbers to identify accounts and make sure money gets where it’s supposed to be. You’ll also need to provide your routing and checking account numbers for:
- Direct deposits
- Electronic checks
- Military allotments
- Wire transfers
Where to Find Your Routing & Checking Account Numbers
Your personal checks include both our routing number and your account number, as shown on the Grow check example below.
Don’t have a Grow check? No worries.
Visit any Grow store and ask for a Direct Deposit Form. It lists both your routing number and checking account number.
Making a Loan Payment
When it comes to making payments, we try to make it as painless as possible to pay your loan every month. We have several different ways to pay, including convenient online options.
You have two ways to pay online by transferring funds from another bank or credit union.
- Grow Online Banking (Preferred payment method for any loan)
This is the simplest way to pay your loan. You can make one-time payments or set up automatic recurring payments in Grow Online Banking. Once you log in, select “Transfer/Payments” from the menu. If you’re not enrolled in Grow Online Banking yet, you can set up your account in just a few minutes.
- Debit Card or ACH (Available for auto, personal and home equity loans and HELOCs)
Note: ACH and debit card payments are not available for credit cards or most mortgages, except HELOCs.
We accept ACH payments with no additional fees or Mastercard® and Visa® debit cards with a convenience fee of $4.95. To get started with an online ACH or debit card payment, select Pay Now below.
Pay by Mail
You can also pay any Grow loan by check through the mail. Please remember to include your account number and Grow loan number on the check. (For credit card payments, please do not write your 16-digit credit card number on the check, which can cause a delay in processing the payment.)
