INSEAD Wendel International Centre for Family Enterprise
The INSEAD Wendel International Centre for Family Enterprise runs events and educational programmes that benefit family firms across the globe. The Centre has adopted a wider advocacy role by raising awareness and understanding of the importance of family enterprise as a business model: not only are family firms in their many forms the most prevalent type of companies worldwide - they are also proven to be among the most successful in the long-term.
The Wendel Centre conducts research, provides education and acts as an international platform for knowledge exchange, in order to support families in business in their endeavor to combine sustainable business growth and healthy family relationships
Center for Family Business der Universtität St. Gallen
The Center for Family Business of the University of St.Gallen (CFB-HSG) positions itself as a leading national and international expert in research, teaching, and executive education in the domain of family business.
Our activities can be divided into three categories: research, teaching, and executive education. These activities reinforce each other and let us uniquely combine rigor and relevance.
Die Idee des Family Business Award entstand aus Anlass des 100. Geburtstags von Walter Haefner, des Unternehmers, der die AMAG 1945 gegründet und in den folgenden Jahrzehnten mit Erfolg zum grössten Import-, Handels- und Serviceunternehmen der schweizerischen Automobilbranche ausgebaut hat. Aber nicht nur der geschäftliche Erfolg, sondern auch Wertvorstellungen, die man heute unter dem Begriff der Nachhaltigkeit zusammenfasst, standen stets im Mittelpunkt des unternehmerischen Wirkens meines Vaters: Beharrliches Verfolgen langfristiger Strategien, Aufbau einer krisenfesten Geschäftsbilanz und die Wahrnehmung sozialer und gesellschaftlicher Verantwortung.
