The Financial Times presents the Americas’ FT 1000, a ranking and special report on the fastest growing companies in north, central and south America, to be published in May 2020.

This will be the first time that the FT, in partnership with Statista, will seek to identify the Americas’ 1,000 companies with the strongest growth between the years 2015 and 2018. Innovative and fast-growing companies are the driving force of the international economy; they generate jobs and sustain market competitiveness.

The special report, appearing both within a weekday edition of the FT newspaper and on ft.com, will publish highlights of the FT 1000 list as well as articles by FT correspondents on trends highlighted by the research.

Potential candidates will be contacted by Statista or can put their name forward on this website.

Why should my company participate?

New business opportunities: Inclusion in the Americas’ FT 1000 will be a visible and public acknowledgment of your company’s performance that extends far beyond your specific industry and country.
