Reader feedback: From little acorns do mighty oaks rise

Re: SARIO's successes and challenges, Volume 11, Number 14, April 11 - April 17, 2005

We are a successful SME looking to expand in Europe; yes I am the first to admit we are no Microsoft or, indeed, BP. When I contacted SARIO I was politely told that they are only interested in BIG investments so please go away.

There is no mention of the fact that SARIO is only interested in the big boys in this article. Maybe they should acquaint themselves with the history of Hewlett Packard, which started from humble beginnings in a garage, and what about IKEA?
