Family Business Roundtables
The Smith Family Business Initiative (SFBI) roundtables explore various topics relevant to family business. We invite a small number of members of family businesses, scholars, and practitioners to join us in discussing a variety of current issues. The SFBI Family Business Roundtables provide an intimate and engaging forum for business leaders, practitioners and academics to share their experience while learning from one another. These intimate gatherings will feature a mix of business owners, thought leaders and family business scholars exploring numerous angles on the selected topic for the day. Each day is highly interactive and informative. Students are encouraged to join in the roundtable sessions, and we welcome them to present specific topics at each roundtable.
The 2019 – 2020 Cornell Family Business Roundtable schedule is currently under development. If you are interested in participating in an upcoming SFBI Family Business Roundtable, have a suggestion for a future topic, or would like to host and support an event contact us.
