Your question needs to be more specific.

There is no universla measure for the "growth rate" of a company. You can only measure the growth rate of a statistc. Commonly used statistics for companies include:
- stock price
- profits (earnings)
- sales
- # of locations
- # of employees

Which of these is most relevant depends on the company. Some newly started companies may have no profits, but are growing sales. Some older companies may have flat sales, but are growing profits.

My suggestion: A lot more people are following the group "Ask a Foolish Question". Head to that group, look around, and ask for clarification. Someone will be there to answer you.
