Orlando Martins, Founder and CEO of ORESA

The nomination deadline is approaching fast for this year’s prestigious, ‘Growth Index’ ranking of the 100 fastest-growing British companies, sponsored by executive search practice, ORESA.

Established to celebrate companies and leaders driving exceptional growth across the nation, Growth Index is the definitive, independent league table which shines a spotlight on the most successful sectors and companies in the UK and analyses the positive impact of purpose, leadership, creativity, and strategy behind their success.

Due to be published in April, the 2024 Growth Index league table will announce 100 of the UK’s fastest growing companies as ranked by a rigorous analysis of compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in sales over the last two financial years. In addition, Growth Index also highlights the purpose, leadership, creativity and strategies behind the sales growth figures.

Companies that believe they have what it takes need to get their skates on – the deadline for entries is 31st December 2023 and the entry requirements can be found below:


Companies must have at least five million pounds in sales and minimum base year sales of £100,000
Have three years of accounts, with sales measured by compound annual growth rate over the last two financial years

The top 10 companies that do not meet the full criteria for the nomination will still be considered for the ORESA ‘ones to watch list.’ This list celebrates emerging companies and recognises their growth and success.

Companies who do find themselves on the Top 100 list will gain visibility and credibility, and will also have year-round opportunities with Growth Index, including exclusive invitations and the chance to participate in speaking events.

Orlando Martins, founder of Growth Index and ORESA, said: “Growth more than any other economic force impacts not just on individuals but on the health and wealth of the nation. Growth Index (GX) celebrates the companies and people whose incredible success stories contribute to this. As we continue to emerge from a period of extreme global financial uncertainty, Growth Index 2024 will explore how the business world is influencing the next chapter of economic growth and preparing to build a more sustainable future. Unlike other lists, Growth Index is a truly national list seeking companies from every corner of the country to get a fully representative picture of how the UK is performing economically.

“As one of the fastest growing global economies, the UK has a diverse range of businesses to celebrate. We are looking forward to analysing all the 2024 nominations and learning about the companies and leaders driving economic growth across the country.”
