Growth Champions of the Greater Bay Area

The South China Morning Post, in partnership with Statista, the German data provider, will be publishing a ranking of the "Growth Champions of the Greater Bay Area". These would be the Top-200 companies in the Greater Bay Area with the highest revenue growth between 2015 and 2018.

After the considerable success of similar projects in various European countries as well as Singapore, Statista is proud to support The South China Morning Post in carrying over this success to the Greater Bay Area, which is, with its vibrant and dynamic economy, a perfect place for such an enterprise.

What’s in it for you?

Companies that participate in this will be part of the most authoritative and comprehensive ranking in the Greater Bay Area. This is likely the first and only such ranking of the fastest-growing companies in the Greater Bay Area. By participating, companies will open themselves to new business opportunities, increase employer branding, gain effective media coverage, and build reputation.

The top companies will be featured on dedicated page with the ranking in a table format, and a special print supplement. Winners will also have the opportunity to license a special logo that states they are a distinguished member of GBA's Growth Champions.

This is the chance for your company to get the recognition it deserves!
