Cornell 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.
2022 Family Business Roundtables
The Smith Family Business Initiative looks forward to resuming our Family Business Roundtables in 2022.
For each Family Business Roundtable, the SFBI partners with a strategic partner to explore topics in depth. If you or your organization is interested in hosting or supporting a Family Business Roundtable, please contact Dann Van Der Vliet (firstname.lastname@example.org).
