Yes, there is a difference between publicly listed companies, and private companies.
But this is not quite the same as the difference between small businesses and big corporations.
There are, for instance, some very large businesses which are NOT publicly listed. Trafigura, Vitoil, Glencore, Koch Industries, Deutsche Bahn are some examples.
