Several witnesses have talked about the importance of post-secondary education, of investing in innovation, making moneys available. Mr. Balsillie, in his article, quoted an American at a conference he was attending who said, “I don't worry about small innovators.” It's as though the lead time, all of the risk, is being taken here or in another country, but when they get to a certain size, that's when they move in and purchase.
How do we, in your experience, foster a situation where if we are investing as we are in post-secondary education, we are investing in innovation, and as many witnesses including yourselves have said, failure is a big part of this.... If you're taking the risk both publicly and privately, how do we better reap the rewards and not have a situation where those start-ups get grabbed by the bigger fish, usually in another country? Do you have any thoughts on that?
