yes, all businesses start off as small business, but most of the important players did all that back with the advent of the industrial revolution.
The new ones that manage to quickly become large usually have friends in high places, engage in dubious cross-border work (shell petroleum, anyone?)
such as environmental desecration of third world countries, sweatshop labour and paramilitary forces to enforce the rule of the corporation and remove
any trade unionists.
Coca Cola, General Motors, Nike, GAP, they all do it. And it should sicken us all.
