The House of Family Businesses

The House of Family Businesses

In 2012, the foundation created the House of Family Businesses as a venue intended to bring to life the economic and social importance of family-owned companies by holding events and facilitating direct contact.

Academics, such as Prof. Friedrich Heinemann (pictured) from the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in Mannheim or Prof. Alwine Mohnen from the Technical University of Munich for example, meet here with entrepreneurs, politicians and journalists to discuss their research findings and topics of relevance.

These exchanges between experts from the realms of policy-making, public administration and academia and representatives of large German family-owned enterprises often result in the Foundation for Family Businesses commissioning further academic research.

It also serves as a place where practitioners from large family businesses can meet to discuss topics relating to the management of family firms, including for example globalisation, security issues, and tax and legal matters.

In addition, the House of Family Businesses acts as a contact point for foreign delegations seeking to exchange views with representatives of major family-owned enterprises and academia:
