Growth Company Research Results 2024

In this research, conducted at our Growth Company Retreat, we asked leaders of high and fast-growth businesses about the challenges and opportunities they face this year, as well as their most likely exit routes.

Key findings from Criticaleye's Growth Company Research:

  • 61% expect to conduct M&A in the next 12 months
  • Only 25% says their management team can navigate strategic uncertainty
  • Improved business performance is the top priority for leaders
  • 88% say their Boards are aligned on strategy
  • A trade exit is the most likely route for growth businesses
  • Internal silos are the biggest barrier to building a customer-centric culture


In a recent Inspiring Leaders podcast, we spoke to growth company leaders about priorities for the next 12 months, advice for first-time CEOs and how the Chair can support their CEO.
