The World Economic Forum’s Community of Global Growth Companies (GGC) was formed in 2007 to engage dynamic high-growth companies with the potential to be tomorrow’s industry leaders and to become a driving force of economic and social change. As of November 2013, over 370 companies from over 60 countries had been admitted to the GGC Community.
Members of the Community of Global Growth Companies convene every year at the Chinese-hosted Annual Meeting of the New Champions and at the World Economic Forum’s regional meetings, and collaborate through the private area of the World Economic Forum's website, an exclusive online networking platform for business and government leaders.
Through these activities, GGC members have an opportunity to benefit from:
- New business opportunities across industries and regions
- Networking with the world’s leading business and policy experts
- Peer-to-peer collaboration and experience exchange
- Industry-specific and cross-industry knowledge sharing
Membership in the Community of Global Growth Companies is by invitation only and includes the world’s fastest-growing corporations.
A typical Global Growth Company has:
- Consistent annual growth rates exceeding industry and regional averages by 15%
- Minimum turnover between US$ 100 million and US$ 5 billion, depending on the industry
- Demonstrated growth potential
- Capacity and intent to build a global business
- Exemplary executive leadership
