Growth Markets

Companies that want to be market leaders benefit by working with one.

Paving the way for high-growth companies and entrepreneurs

Almost 25 years ago in Canada, EY formed a practice dedicated to serving the unique needs of high-growth companies to help them grow into market leaders. Today, our Growth Markets practice is a global network of professionals proficient in every area of the firm. A network focused on advising the full spectrum of dynamic, fast-moving and ground-breaking companies around the world, including:

  • Venture capital-backed / private equity portfolio companies
  • Large private and family enterprises
  • IPO-bound companies
  • Public companies

More than any other professional services firm, EY has been on the forefront of accelerated growth, fueled by ambition, innovation and market disruption. We know what it looks like and we know how to support it. That’s how EY became and has remained the undisputed world leader in advising, guiding and recognizing entrepreneurs.
