Exponential Growth

This blog is dedicated to the discussion and journey to identify the success pattern of America's highest growth companies. Where do you find them? Of the 7,454 U.S. Companies that IPO's since 1980 only 5% achieved $1B revenue. Only 5% in constrast to the 25% that went out of business.

Was there a common growth pattern? They exhibited a common revenue growth characteristic -- exponential growth. Exponential growth is consistent compounding growth. It is unique to these companies.

Is this new? With all of the research on growth one might think no. I didn't-- Until I Googled "Exponential Growth". Try it. I found no business reference!!! Yes, you will find, as of April 2006 the following:

This unique growth pattern of America's highest growth companies is not a pattern that has been quantified.

Challenge yourself to search for, what I have been searching for, the common success pattern of America's highest growth companies. Search for the success pattern of exponential growth companies. I think you will find what I found - not alot.

When I started my research, I believed that identifying the success pattern would be a 6 month project. Three years later, I finised my research and published the "Blueprint to a Billion". This new book is unique in that it is the only book that articulates the exponential growth pattern of America's highest growth companies. I am pleased to contribute to what appears to be a huge white space in our learning from the masters of growth -- the 387 Blueprint Companies who achieved $1B revenue since 1980.

I am not a business woman but chose to read Blueprint to a Billion to see what it was about. I was fascinated by the story of how and why this book was written and have great admiration for the person who has the ability to collect all this data and has the friends who supported him through this proc ess. Great work.
