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
(FR) Center for Family Business of the University of 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.
L’idée du Family Business Award est née à l’occasion du 100e anniversaire de Walter Haefner, l’entrepreneur qui a fondé AMAG en 1945 et développé avec succès son entreprise dans les décennies qui ont suivi, pour en faire le leader des sociétés commerciales, d’importation et de services du secteur suisse de l’automobile. La réussite commerciale mais aussi les idéaux que l’on retrouve aujourd’hui dans la notion de développement durable ont toujours été au coeur de l’action entrepreneuriale de mon père: la poursuite acharnée des stratégies sur le long terme, la constitution d’un bilan solide résistant aux crises, la garantie d’une responsabilité sociale et sociétale.
