As expected, many of the fastest growing companies are among the smallest. Eliminating them brings median growth rates down ~10 percentage points. Median growth rates are consistent with last year’s results. However, this year’s respondent pool was more evenly distributed.

Survey results indicate that companies in the $7.5MM-$15MM range are among the fastest growers. The median growth in this range is much greater than the median of companies half their size. Interestingly, there was a similar bump-up last year, but for companies between $5MM-$7.5MM.
