The list of the top 500 fastest growing companies includes companies, which have achieved an especially high percentage of growth per year between 2012 and 2015.

In addition to general information about the company, the sales figures had to be confirmed in writing by an authorised person.
Boris Groth, CEO at SGM Solutions & Global Media GmbH comments this ranking:
” The whole SGM team is happy to have been awarded on place two in the educational sector by FOCUS/STATISTA. Within the transition from an industrial to a knowledge society, education has become a megatrend. Institutions and their understanding of education changes rapidly on a global scale. Skills are situational: problem solving is the most valuable resource of the knowledge society of tomorrow. Therefore, we are operating and specialising in new and rapidly growing markets of education from school level across vocational training up to university.
Technology is an enabler and the backbone of our business. But we have learned to concentrate on educational goals, effectiveness of learning programmes and according quality, usability and utility of e.g. online-learning for the students.
We created the brand brainshuttle(tm) for this, which gives us a competitiveness at the leading-edge of online training and e-learning as a full service provider.
Most important: The commitment to create new ways of learning comes from our sincere dedication and belief in what and how we we do things.
