Why Are We Ignoring Family Business?
- Dr. Frank Hoy, Foisie Business School, Beswick Professor and Director, Collaborative for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
Do you think that question is an exaggeration? Family businesses outnumber non-family businesses in most national economies. How much attention do they really get in business education? How many universities offer programs, or even a course? Do many educators believe the myth that you should not go into business with family members? Do they think that family businesses are dysfunctional? What about studies that suggest that family businesses outperform and outlive non-family businesses? Could it be that family businesses have lessons for non-family firms? Let’s think about what we can teach our students and what we still have to learn.
