Fast growing firms - commonly referred at as gazelles in the literature - are believed to be important for an economy. For example, they appear to be important job creators. See for a survey of the literature Henrekson and Johansson (2008). Furthermore, they are believed to be important innovators and to have a relative high labour productivity. Finally, they can act as a role model for other firms. In this paper, the authors investigate what aspects characterize these gazelles in the Dutch economy. As such, it fits in a larger project taken up by the OECD, in which such an exercise is done for many OECD countries.
