Based on the panel data of GEM listed companies from 2014 to 2016, this paper studies the relationship between different executive compensation incentive methods and the growth of companies, and discusses how different executive incentive methods affect the growth of innovative enterprises. The results show that there is a significant positive correlation between executive compensation incentive, equity incentive and the growth of innovative enterprises. However, the compensation gap has no significant impact on the growth of innovative enterprises. It can be seen that compensation incentive and equity incentive can positively promote the growth of innovative enterprises, but the relationship between compensation gap and the growth of innovative enterprises has not been effectively verified.
