Entrepreneurship, Family Business
Family-owned and -run businesses dominate in most economies. According to latest figures, around 83 percent of French businesses are family businesses. Similarly, worldwide family businesses account for around 70 to 90 percent of all businesses. In the US, family businesses constitute 85 percent of private sector employment and one-third of the S&P 500. The probability is high that many students will pursue careers in or with family businesses. Jobs in investment banking, wealth management, consulting and management all relate to some extent to family businesses.
Family firms (both private and publicly traded) face unique challenges. These difficulties are primarily related to the interaction of family, management and ownership - particularly where the family wishes to preserve its influence and control from generation to generation.
The programme introduces a series of renowned speakers to debate some of the key challenges facing start-ups such as funding, managing the growing venture, keeping motivated during difficult times and building a talented team. Each speaker will share their unique experiences and insight, providing a practical perspective and wisdom from many years in industry and entrepreneurship. The International Speaker Series gives you a chance to connect with some of the best entrepreneurship speakers and thought leaders in their field.
