What FBN offers to business families and their members

FBN offers unique value and insights to family business members including:

  • A strong international community of business owners, both global and local
  • An inclusive, non-solicitation environment for intimate and authentic peer-to-peer learning for all members of the family.
  • A platform that fosters communication and dialogue across generations, where each family member is invited to share their values, long-term aspirations, and roles within the family.
  • A forum where every stakeholder, CEO, board member, shareholder, spouse or next-generation member can engage with their peers on the problems they are confronted with on a day-to-day basis and find support in learning through shared experiences.

 

Defining Success Across Generations to build a sustainable future:

Family businesses are essential to building a transformative and sustainable future:

  • Worldwide, they account for two-thirds of businesses, employ 60% of the workforce and contribute over 70% of global GDP.
  • Given this predominance and their inherent focus on long-term success, family businesses are well-positioned to lead the way in creating a more purpose-driven model of business. Whether it is through practices that drive social and economic impact or ones that help regenerate the environment, family businesses are having a positive impact on their communities.
  • As the world leading FB organization, FBN acts as the collective voice of business families and plays an increasing influential role in promoting family business models in society.
