MegaGrowth 50 - celebrating the 50 fastest-growing businesses in Kent and Medway


MegaGrowth 50 - the annual list of the fastest-growing businesses in Kent - is returning.

Now in its 19th year, it took a break during the challenges brought about by the pandemic, but now MegaGrowth 50 is mounting a comeback.


Kent's annual list of its fastest-growing businesses is put together based on the average turnover growth of privately owned businesses that have a minimum turnover of £1million, as stipulated in full accounts registered at Companies House across the last four years.

Businesses with notable turnover growth over recent years that do not register full accounts at Companies House are also recognised and are invited to submit their accounts for consideration.

The deadline for all entries is 5pm on June 1.


MegaGrowth 50 is compiled and sponsored by KM Media Group, business advisors and accountants Kreston Reeves and law firm Brachers.


If you have filed a full set of accounts at Companies House in each of the last four years you do not need to fill out an application form as your figures will be downloaded by the MegaGrowth 50 project team.

Others who wish to apply should complete the application form here. It is free to apply.

If you have any queries or are uncertain of your eligibility to apply, contact enquiries@krestonreeves.com.


All successful application forms will require verification. You will be contacted by a representative from Kreston Reeves who will ask for evidence of your financial statement.

Those making the list will be invited to a special breakfast presentation at the Tudor Park Marriott Hotel, near Maidstone, in November. The full list will be published in November both on KentOnline and in our newspapers.


Appearing in MegaGrowth 50 will help your organisation to stand out from the crowd, send a positive message to your existing customers and attract new business. Whether yours is a large or small company, there are lots of very good reasons to apply:

  • Invaluable media coverage
    You have the opportunity to gain media attention and valuable publicity, which will help you attract new customers, as well as increasing respect from your existing client base.
  • Network with fellow business leaders
    Attending the presentation breakfast gives you the opportunity to network with other business leaders and professionals.

  • Certificate to display
    You are presented with a certificate which can be displayed within the workplace creating pride in your staff and favourable impressions with visiting customers, both existing and new.

"It’s always great to see Kent businesses doing well and the USP of the MegaGrowth 50 awards is that unlike traditional business awards, it picks up fantastic success stories of businesses who don’t ever shout about it. Kreston Reeves has been honoured to sponsor MegaGrowth 50 for over 10 years and a part of recognising and awarding Kent and Medway businesses for their growth and making this a great place to do business. We are delighted to welcome Brachers this year as our new sponsorship partners of MegaGrowth 50 and look forward to working in collaboration with them on this project.”

Nigel Fright, Managing Partner at Kreston Reeves

"This year we’ll be celebrating those who have not only survived but thrived in the face of the recent challenging economic environment. As a firm, we love a good success story and we’re lucky to work in a county with so many thriving and entrepreneurial businesses. We’re looking forward to hearing about the achievements of local organisations across Kent and Medway, particularly the hidden gems that MegaGrowth 50 has always been so good at putting in the spotlight.”

James Bullock, Head of Corporate and Commercial at Brachers
