About the Gazelle Companies

The term “Gazelles” was created by the American researcher David Birch. By the 1980s, he was showing that it is the small, fast-growing companies that are creating most of the new jobs, unlike the economy’s elephants, which always need to streamline and often reduce employment.

In addition, Gazelles differ from the very smallest companies that work to make a living and are not primarily aiming to grow.
