The 2014 L’Express Awards - Expansion

This ranking highlights the elite group of entrepreneurs in the country. It is the first step in the Entrepreneur of the Year Award jointly organized by EY and L'Express, in partnership with Edmond de Rothschild and Verlingue, an insurance broker, with the support of Bpifrance, Les Echos and Widoobiz II. It results from a careful selection of the most successful companies.

France is a country of entrepreneurs

Yes, there are healthy and growing French companies; no, they are not afraid of showing their results - this is what facilitates investments to help them grow and create jobs. Yes, like their German counterparts, they are expanding in international markets. Yes, they innovate and yes, there are world champions among them. Remember that to be included in our list, companies must realise a 2013 turnover higher than € 10 million, 20% cumulative growth between 2009 and 2013 for companies of up to 100 million in turnover (15% for those beyond 100 million) and a pre-tax return equal to or higher than 3% in 2013. In addition, the leader must control at least 10% of the company's capital, which implies its independence.
