India’s Growth Champions 2021 highlights rare success stories amidst COVID-19 aftermath

ET aims at highlighting the mercurial growth and rapid progress of these companies who have been making waves in their respective sectors. Some leading brands in the list include Zomato, Kinara Capital, upGrad, Razorpay, Wakefit, Welspun Enterprises, Paytm, Mahindra First Choice, SaaS Labs, Radico Khaitan, Jubilant FoodWorks, InstaSafe and Indiabulls Ventures among numerous others.

Several Davids have stumbled severely in the business world due to the coronavirus pandemic and the preceding economic slowdown that had started worldwide. Yet, there are many nimble and agile Goliaths who have managed to not only stay afloat but keep growing rapidly in turn. These are exceptional entities across several business sectors that have been moving towards progress and expanding amidst adversities. The sheer scale of this achievement can be understood when you consider how the Indian economy was moving towards a slowdown even before COVID-19 like the rest of the world. Also, COVID-19 has wiped out several companies from the map altogether while forcing other established names to reorganize, reset and count their losses. 


However, the exceptions in the Indian business world across industries or the fastest growing Indian companies have been highlighted by ET. The Economic Times India’s Growth Champions 2021 is the second edition of the event. The prestigious rankings have been compiled in collaboration once again with Statista. For being eligible to apply and register, companies should be independent entities with organic growth and of course, a certain revenue threshold between 2016/17 and 2019/20.
