Private Equity Includes Dragons' Den

Dragons' Den, the CBC's hit reality TV Show, is a glimpse into the world of private equity. You can get a good feel for how private investors react to entrepreneurs relying on attracting their funding.

Private equity actually means privately held money - money not invested into the public markets which are open for all. With the IPO being a bad choice due to to the onerous costs of SOX and the bubbles now happening more frequently and with larger ups and fast disappearing "pops", private equity is finding itself to be a welcome option for business owners.

Jacoline Loewen, author of Money Magnet and partner with Loewen & Partners, does some blogging on Dragons' Den and points out the business lessons to learn as these millionaires react openly to entrepreneurs.
