High-growth firms (HGFs) – firms able to grow fast over a short period of time – contribute to most new jobs in advanced economies. Nonetheless, they are faced with challenges in the upgrading of management skills, access to equity finance and commercialisation of research. This report benchmarks programmes for HGFs through an assessment framework of 35 qualitative indicators that the OECD LEED programme has designed. Special attention is given to business accelerator schemes.

Programmes are benchmarked against their institutional context, academic and professional background of staff members, profile of participant firms, type of business diagnosis, delivery arrangements, M&E practices, and performance of participants firms.

Key recommendations stemming from the analysis are that: programmes for HGFs should not be sector-based since HGFs are found in any sector; they should provide a mixed offer of services where peer learning plays an important role; they should seek the collaboration of the private sector for implementation; and they should ensure the presence of entrepreneurial experience within the management of the programme.
