Fastest Growing Companies

Despite a global downturn that has caused most companies to contract and shrink, some businesses have managed to buck the trend and grow rapidly.

Who are they?

Each September Fortune Magazine highlights these shining star companies in their Fastest Growing Companies list. Ranked on revenue, earnings growth, and their stock returns over the past three years, this is one list you don’t want to miss.

How can you find out more?

This year CNBC and Fortune collaborated on a one-hour primetime special profiling five companies that made it onto the list. CNBC Managing Editor, Tyler Mathisen and Fortune Magazine Managing Editor, Andy Serwer will co-host the primetime special which debuts on Wednesday at 9pm ET.
