Trapets has been appointed to Gasell 2017

Trapets has been appointed one of Sweden’s fastest growing and most profitable companies and thus been awarded the appointment as Gasell 2017 by Dagens Industri.

DI Gasell criteria:
To be appointed to Gasell, the company must meet all of the criterias below. But in addition to these criteria, DI makes an overall assessment of the company and weighs in additional parameters which shows the business is sound. In the Gasell survey, DI always analyse the company’s four most recent annual reports.

A Gasell has:

A turnover exceeding SEK 10 million
At least ten employees
At least doubled its turnover, comparing the first and last fiscal year during the examination period
Increased its turnover every year over the past three years
A combined operating profit for the four fiscal years that is positive
Essentially grown organically, not through acquisitions or mergers
Healthy finances

Purpose of Di Gasell:

The purpose of Di Gasell is to support and encourage Swedish businesses and entrepreneurs who dare to bet to grow! The term Gasell was created by American scientist David Birch. A gasell company is a small fast-growing company and as Birch already showed in the 1980s, it is these companies that create most new jobs, unlike the elephants of the economy, which must constantly improve efficiency and often reduce employment. Since 2000, Dagens Industri has appointed the fastest growing companies in each of Sweden’s 21 counties at eight Gasell parties from Malmö in the south to Umeå in the north. Prizes are framed by interviews with entrepreneurs and business profiles, who share their experiences. At the end of the Gasell Festival, Supergasellen is also the company that has grown fastest in Sweden in the last three years.
