The winners in context

This seventh annual FT 1000 ranking, compiled with data provider Statista, identifies businesses that have flourished and expanded throughout ongoing economic pressures.

The ranking lists European companies that achieved the highest compound annual growth rate in revenue between 2018 and 2021. The minimum average growth rate required to be included on the list was 36.2%.

To be included in the list of Europe's fastest growing companies, a company had to meet the following criteria:

  • Revenue of at least €100,000 generated in 2018
  • Revenue of at least €1.5 million generated in 2021
  • The company is independent (not a subsidiary or branch office of any kind)
  • The company is headquartered in one of 34 European countries
  • The revenue growth between 2018 and 2021 was primarily organic (i.e. "internally" stimulated)
  • If a company is listed on a stock exchange, its share price has not fallen 75% or more since 2021

A special report to accompany this ranking examines how sustainable that pace of growth is for some companies, and assesses the new pressures set to reshape the corporate landscape.
