All founders of private companies are founders of family companies, many just don’t realise it early on. The fact is that a majority of active companies were established in the last 10-20 years, and so the moment when the founders realise that they are a family company is yet to come. Founders start their companies, among other reasons, in order to provide for themselves and their family, largely unaware of the inevitability of the moment when the growth curves of their biological children and their other “child” – their company – will intersect.
The goal of the training is to provide founders and owners with the basic elements of how family companies operate and show them what the challenges of bringing successors into the company will be. During the seminar, experienced ASEE consultants will talk about some possible and recommended steps in preparing the founder, the company and potential successors for the transfer of leadership.
