Entrepreneurship & Family Business - Necessary Partners.

Families in Business Gathering – May 29, 2014
The Essex, Essex, Vermont

Any business begins with a founder’s or a family’s entrepreneurial vision and entrepreneurship continues to play a significant role throughout the family firm’s evolution as it grows and prospers. Of course, not all family enterprises are entrepreneurial and not all new initiatives are family enterprises. Where is yours and how will it endure?

Spend a day working ON your business and not IN your business. Join with your business peers for the Spring Families in Business Gathering, hosted by the Family Business Initiative @ UVM. With concurrent sessions focusing on business, ownership or family, the day will offer workshops, stories and networking which focus on the robust link between family enterprise and entrepreneurship.
