Asia Pacific Family Summit: Stimulating Entrepreneurship In Family Firms

Written by Featured Organization on 30 November 2009.

The Babson College STEP Project For Family Enterprising (Successful Transgenerational Entrepreneurship Practices) held its second Asia Pacific Family Summit at the Korean Federation of Banks in Seoul, Korea.

Participants at the November event included academics representing leading universities and families from throughout Asia Pacific. The driving themes of the events were “An entrepreneurial approach to succession” for the open morning session and “The role of effective governance in stimulating entrepreneurship” during the closed session afternoon roundtables. The conference was sponsored by Korean Association of Small Business Studies.

The Babson Global STEP Project is an applied research initiative that explores the entrepreneurial process within business families and generates solutions that have immediate application for family leaders. More information can be found at www.STEPProject.com.

Each year families who participate in the STEP Project are invited to join with academics for a STEP Summit. The Summit is a distinctive part of the STEP Project's applied research design, allowing the families to receive immediate value from the findings and the academics to better understand the needs of the families.
