Most businesses nowadays are service based and do not require much physical assets (capital) to start - what you need is a functional business model, passion, smarts, customer base, knowledge, good workers etc - all intangible "assets" that cannot be given to someone else. The idea of transferring the means of production makes little sense for any service based business.

The physical assets of production even for large companies like google are very small, mostly servers & computers that will quickly depreciate in a few years.

Redistributing the means of production is a late-feudal idea ("land reform") and requires stable physical assets like land for agriculture.
