About us

Our mission

We support family businesses big and small in balancing close relationships and strategic concerns. We help families and professionals share their experience and knowledge as to managing, developing and handing over the family business.
 
We organise events and partner with many institutions and professional advisors to provide our members with knowledge in the field of family businesses research.
 
As part of the political process, we defend the specific interests of family enterprises and thereby raise awareness of their importance to society.
