The concept of the Gazelle Company stems from the fast and agile Gazelle

Gazelle companies are geared to grow, when they meet obstacles not to be overcome they are flexible and can turn direction on the spot, and continue to grow fast, using another track.

Speed, agility and flexibility are common characteristics of the Gazelle company, the fast growers of the business sector.

The growth of the Gazelle companies is normally financed by their own cash flows, they tend not to take in external capital and carry little debt. Their role model from nature can reach a speed of 85 kilometers per hour, the Gazelle company doubles in size every 3 years, or faster.
