Sponsored by the Bertarelli Institute for Family Entrepreneurship, Babson’s newly formed Family Entrepreneurship Research Community is comprised of global entrepreneurial families who are interested in participating in our research on an ongoing basis. Community members participate in two short surveys per year and have exclusive access to our research results and findings before publication of the work. Additionally, members will receive exclusive invitations to special webinars and other events where our research faculty, led by Professors Bill Gartner and Matt Allen, will share and discuss the results along with implications for business families.
Our first survey was launched in July 2020 and it focused on understanding what business families are facing within their families, their businesses, and the market during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are also interested in learning about the topics entrepreneurial families believe are of the most interest to them. All collected information will remain confidential and will be presented only at an aggregate level. You can read the findings of our first survey here.
We invite all entrepreneurial families to join this meaning project by completing the next survey to share their unique experience and learn from each other.
