Why “Gazelles”?
Gazelles’ founder Verne Harnish tells a story about gazelles and lions. It’s a competitive world out there when you’re a growth company. Gazelles (the animals) spend their days running – it’s how they survive. Growth companies must do the same, by proactively focusing on growth.

“Gazelle” is also a technical economic term for a company growing at an annual rate of 20 percent (or more). If your company is a “gazelle” – or aspires to be one – you should be working with Illinois Growth Advisors.
