Due to their important contribution to overall growth performance of economies policy makers have attributed great importance to high growth firms (HGFs). In order to support the efforts of these firms researchers have tried to find the factors that initiated and promoted the growth performance of HGFs. However, this is not a simple task since the factors that contribute to the growth performances of firms seems to vary across sectors and countries. This study examines the characteristics of HGFs and tries to identify factors that stimulate HGFs in the Turkish manufacturing sector using firm level data during 2003-2014.
