About Top 100

Founded in 2008, the Kenya Top 100 mid-sized companies Survey (‘Top 100 Survey’) is an initiative of KPMG and Nation Media Group. The survey seeks to identify Kenya’s fastest-growing medium sized companies to showcase business excellence and highlight some of the country’s most successful entrepreneurship stories.

The first Top 100 Survey Kenya Chapter was launched in April of 2008. Since then, we have Chapters for Tanzania and Uganda.

The ‘Top 100 Mid-sized Company” (‘Top 100 Company’) is one that ranks ahead of its peers in terms of revenue growth, profit growth, returns to shareholders and cash generation/liquidity.  A Top 100 company has succeeded in progressively growing its market position in the industries in which it operates and over time, this growth has translated into both returns for its shareholders and a sound financial position.
