Locally grounded and globally connected: FBN Switzerland is the Swiss chapter of the world’s largest independent organisation for family businesses and entrepreneurial families.
We are a place for meeting and dialogue: we offer family businesses a trustworthy platform for peer-to-peer interaction, knowledge transfer and networking across generations and national borders.
We deliver relevant content: reports sharing real-life experience from renowned family businesses give our members first-hand, concrete examples of corporate and family governance. Input from both experts and the research community keeps our members up to date with the most recent developments in family entrepreneurship.
However diverse the strategic focus and involvement of family members in the business, there is nothing that resembles one family business more than another family business. While a focus on values and a multi-generational approach represent typical strengths, the potential complexity of family and business ties harbours numerous sources of tension.
At FBN Switzerland, we create a discreet environment of trust and mutual support for our members. We provide a place where they feel heard and understood, where we not only identify problems but also flag potential solutions and opportunities by means of reciprocal, cross-generational learning.
Do you own and manage a family business in Switzerland or are you, as the Next Generation, in the process of positioning yourself within the family business? Would you like to exchange ideas with other entrepreneurial families about the challenges and opportunities of your business?
