to add an equity partner or not to add, that Is the question?

I’m always curious to know why Business Owners quite freely jump to the suggestion of bringing in an equity partner when thinking of growth. Especially if they claim they have funds to add to the pot! Whereas the option of Growth by Acquisition rarely gets a look in. I’m not suggesting for one minute that it’s not an option, not at all.
