About the Program

Much of the wealth in America today has come from family-owned businesses.  Recognizing that family businesses are the engine of significant wealth, it should be no surprise that business-owning families would like to see the business (and the wealth from such business) continue through multiple generations.

But there is a rub. The likelihood of successful transitions of family businesses to the third generation and beyond is distressingly low: less than 12% of businesses survive to the third generation.  Why the dismal results in succession planning for family businesses?  This presentation will explore how the family can mitigate the failure rate and some best practices that can be implemented to strengthen the business and the family over multiple generations.
