Good morning, it’s time entrepreneurs made their voices heard. 👋 I was flicking through my edition of The Sunday Times Top Track 250 (out last month), the annual league table of the country’s most successful private businesses. Some of the businesses are astounding. Manufacturers in Manchester. Farmers in Furness. Builders in Bolton. But given their huge economic clout, I was struck by how many companies I didn’t recognise.

Why don’t we know about them? The City, the media and politicians bear some of the blame. But family businesses are not putting their best foot forward either. Understandably, they relish being low-key and self-effacing. But there is a difference between being dignified, subtle and humble—and being invisible. And too many are the latter.

Hang on, but why would a private business come out from the shadows?

In sum... it’s time entrepreneur-led businesses got their voices heard.
