About Top 100
The Survey was first launched in Kenya in 2008, in Uganda in 2009 and in Tanzania in 2010. The Survey focuses on fast growing mid-sized companies in recognition of the fact that the SME sector is a key contributor to the economic growth of each of the East African countries.
Strathmore Business School (SBS) has been the knowledge partner of this worthy survey. The theme of the Top 100 Mid-Sized Companies survey is ‘One Market. More Opportunities’, which is driven by the East African Market protocol, which seeks to have the countries lying within East Africa, operate as one common market – which will yield immense opportunities for the businesses represented.
