Mitt Romney may be the most successful businessman to ever run for president.

Reasons to agree

  1. Prior to being elected governor, Romney was a cofounder and managing partner of Bain Capital, a Boston private equity firm.
  2. From 1978 to 1984, Romney was a Vice President of Bain & Company, Inc., a Boston-based management consulting firm. Later, as the company's CEO, he led it through a highly successful turnaround 7. Today, Bain & Company has 31 offices in 19 countries and over 2800 employees.
  3. In 1984, Romney co-founded Bain Capital, one of the nation's most successful venture capital investment companies. Among the first companies it invested in was Staples, an office-supply store. In 1986 Staples, Inc., had one store. Today it has nearly 1,700. Bain Capital founded, acquired or invested in hundreds of companies including Bright Horizons Family Solutions, Brookstone, Domino's, Sealy and The Sports Authority.


Reasons to disagree:
