Meet the 500 leading companies in Business Growth

What is CEPYME500?

CEPYME500 is an initiative led by CEPYME to identify, select and promote a group of 500 companies that are leading business growth, both due to their results in recent years and due to their ability to generate added value, employment, innovation and international projection.

The selected companies are part of an exclusive group of 500 medium-sized firms that are leading business growth. For this selection, we assessed a set of indicators that measure the growth, solvency, innovation potential and international projection potential of these companies.

The core function of this initiative is to grant national and international recognition and projection to the selected companies, thereby boosting their growth potential and their visibility.

  • the promotion and recognition of the company and its directors.
  • the opportunity to interact with company managers who have the motivation to innovate.
  • the recruitment and retention of employees.
  • vital information on international markets.
  • customised and exclusive solutions in terms of financing, digitisation and international expansion, as well as other products and services.

Selection method for CEPYME500 companies

To select the Spanish economy's 500 most important SMEs, we combined financial variables with indicators of innovation and international expansion.

This in-depth analysis was possible thanks to a partnership with the leading business and entrepreneur information company, Informa D&B, which manages a database with expert commercial and financial information.

To reach the select group of 500 companies, recognised as CEPYME500 companies, the following selection criteria were used, among others:

  • Only public limited and private limited companies were considered.
  • Operational for at least four years.
  • Going concerns from all industries.
  • Companies with financial or holding activities were excluded.
  • Companies with Spanish shareholding were selected, excluding subsidiaries.
  • Sales figures for the year 2016 had to be between 10 and 200 million euros.
  • The selected companies must have recorded a Compound Annual Growth Rate of more than 15% over the past three years.
  • Factors such as the companies' solvency, international projection and innovation were also considered.
