The TOP 100 are regarded as pacesetters in their industries
More than 4,000 companies were interested in being one of the TOP 100 companies this year. 366 of these applied to participate in the qualification round. 284 companies made it into the final round. 238 were selected to be listed in the TOP 100 (maximum 100 in each of the three size classes). Assessment of the companies was completed by Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke and his team from the Chair for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration. Their assessments were based on over 100 parameters in 5 evaluation categories: “Innovation-friendly Senior Management”, “Climate of Innovation”, “Innovative Processes and Organisation”, “Innovation Marketing”, and “Innovatory Success”.

On average, they achieved 40 percent of their turnover with market innovations and improvements which they launched onto the market ahead of the competition.
