Abstract

May 30, 2019 – Private equity deals are key to fueling the growth of small firms, as well as the Canadian economy, according to a report from the C.D. Howe Institute. In “Growth Surge: How Private Equity Can Scale Up Firms and the Economy,” Daniel Schwanen, Jeremy Kronick and Farah Omran examine the role of private equity as a stepping stone for growth by home-grown firms and recommend governments implement measures that can help firms grow, or gain a more solid footing, beyond the initial venture stage.
