Involving Family in Your Business Enterprise: Essential Do’s and Don’ts You Need to Know

February 13, 2018 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am

- $25

As small enterprises grow beyond the start-up stage, they begin to face new challenges: How to grow? Where to acquire more capital? Who to hire and for which role(s)?

One of the most consequential decisions entrepreneurs will make is whether to proactively and formally involve family members in the business. Three-quarters of all new business ventures established in the United States are founded with significant involvement of the family in the business.

Gain insights into the dynamics that accompany the decision to involve or reject the collaboration of family members. Discover ways that a family moves through each generation of development. Learn from successful entrepreneurs on how they addressed legacy and succession challenges while minimizing conflict.

Learn from experts to explore:

  • If, Why, When, and How to get your family involved in your business enterprise.
  • Key challenges that entrepreneurs face when they consider hiring family members.
  • Matching business needs with family members’ skill capabilities and limitations.
  • How each succeeding generation brings greater complexity and requires new levels of organizational structures.
