Family businesses make up a significant number of businesses for most groups worldwide.

However, family business is less the norm for Caribbean entrepreneurs of colour and their peers in diasporic markets. Still there are Canadian mainstream entrepreneurs and others who do not have the support of family in or behind their businesses. Many are stressed knowing their will be no one to carry on manage, grow or maintain their investment.
