For many years, the Financial Times and its research partner, Statista, have been compiling rankings of companies with the fastest growing revenues over three-year periods.

But how many of these businesses have gone on to sustain their growth — for an entire decade?

Now, for the first time, we intend to find out.

In a new research project, starting today, the FT is inviting companies with a record of consistent revenue growth over ten years, or more, to register for consideration in our latest ranking: Europe’s Long-Term Growth Champions 2025.

Registration takes only a few minutes and can be carried out using this online form. At this stage, you need only provide the company’s revenue figures for 2013 and 2023 (optionally for the years in between); the number of employees in 2013 and 2023; and the founding year.

Register for our ranking of Europe’s Long-Term Growth Champions 2025

At the same time, potential candidates for inclusion will be contacted by Statista and invited to submit their revenue figures.

Those companies found to have the strongest revenue growth over the ten-year assessment period will be featured in a special report published on FT.com and with the Financial Times newspaper in November 2024. 

To be eligible for the ranking of Europe’s Long-Term Growth Champions 2025, companies must meet the following criteria:
