Calculation of growth rates

The calculation of company growth rates is based on the revenue figures submitted by the companies in the respective national currency. For better comparability in the ranking the revenue figures were converted into euros. The average exchange rate for the financial year indicated by the company was used for this purpose.

The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) was calculated as follows:

CAGR formula for 2022 - Revenue of 2020 divided by revenue of 2017 to the power of 1/3 minus 1 is CAGR


Application Phase

The project was advertised online and in print, allowing all eligible companies to register via the websites created by Statista and the Financial Times. In addition, through research in company databases and other public sources Statista has identified tens of thousands of companies in the Americas as potential candidates for the ranking. These companies were invited to participate in the competition by post, email and telephone.

The application phase ran from 15th September 2021 to 31st January 2022. The submitted revenue figures had to be certified by the CFO, CEO or a member of the Executive Committee of the company.

The ranking was created through a complex procedure. Although the search was very extensive, the ranking does not claim to be complete, as some companies did not want to make their figures public or did not participate for other reasons.


To be included in the list of The Americas’ Fastest Growing Companies, a company had to meet the following criteria:

• Revenue of at least $100,000 generated in 2017 (or currency value equivalent according to the average of the actual fiscal year).
• Revenue of at least $1.5m generated in 2020 (or currency value equivalent according to the average of the actual fiscal year).
• Be independent (the company is not a subsidiary or branch office of any kind).
• Revenue growth between 2017 and 2020 that was primarily organic (i.e., “internally” stimulated)

Companies from the following countries are eligible to participate : Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, United States, Uruguay, Venezuela.


The list ranks entrants from across the Americas by their compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in revenue between 2017 and 2020. The fiscal years that predominantly fall into 2017 and 2020 were used for this calculation.

Quality Assurance

All data reported by the companies was processed and checked by Statista. Missing data entries (employee numbers, address data, etc.) were researched in detail. Companies that did not fulfill the criteria for inclusion in the ranking were deleted.
