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

The application phase ran from 21st October 2022 to 15th January 2023. The submitted revenue figures had to be certified by the CFO, CEO or a member of the Executive Committee of the company.
