Abstract [en]

The importance of fast-growing companies, so-called gazelles, for

the creation of jobs and wealth in society is undisputed (e.g. Birch 1981). Less

is known about how a firm can become – and stay – a gazelle. While

innovation is often pointed out as a key to successful business development, the

relationship between investments in innovation and R&D activities and

profitable long-term growth is still unclear. The aim of this paper is to evaluate

the importance of innovation aspects for rapid growth in small and mediumsized

enterprises, SMEs. Empirically, it is based on an initiative to enhance fast

growth in SMEs in a region in Sweden. Early results from analyzing 39 cases

indicate that innovation factors distinguish fast-growing companies from lowgrowing

ones.
