The network of the fastest growing businesses
Trends Gazelles celebrate competitive businesses, selected per province for the positive influence they have had on the business climate in their region. The “Gazelles” are always powerful sources of innovation; they stimulate employment, are often inspiring role models for other (younger) companies and enjoy considerable national recognition in the business world.
The aim is not only to highlight these fast growing businesses in each province, but also to help create an optimal breeding ground for independent entrepreneurship. For many this event is also a unique chance for building strong networks (entrepreneurs, interested policy makers, politicians, colleagues ...).
The Trends / Trends-Tendances editorial team looks for businesses that are operationally independent, that have created 20 job places since being set up, and that have existed for at least 5 years. An analysis is carried out on all of the Belgian companies from the Trends Top 100,000. The fastest growing businesses are then nominated as Trends Gazelles, and 1 Trends Gazelles ambassador is chosen.
