Could we ever get to a point where it is no longer necessary for companies to ever go public?

I was listening to Bloomberg radio a few days ago and they had a guest who explained how growing start up type companies no longer need to go public because there is so much venture capital/private equity money sloshing around that entrepreneurs no longer need public assets to grow their business. Then, when they do decide to cash in, and go public, the public doesn’t have much discretionary capital to spare, so the future could end up being all private funding for new businesses.

He said that as more and more capital is concentrated in fewer hands (sovereign wealth funds, billionaire investors, pensions, endowments, etc….) there is plenty of money to go around via concentrated, private ownership.

What worries me about this development is that it will create a barrier to entry for the general public to take advantage of a growing economy and reap rewards from capitalism. Stock ownership among the general public has been [declining lately](https://news.gallup.com/poll/266807/percentage-americans-owns-stock.aspx), which is also concerning.
