I thought I try and get down a few of the critical points made:
Michael Castellarin, Clairvest, spoke about why family businesses should look to Private Equity over a final sale as the fund can smooth the family issues. Yet, I never hear a word about private equity's value at business succession events. This has got to change for Canada's economy to grow. We have 200,000 small businesses needing to get much bigger.
