Do you need someone that understands you
when it comes to your family business?

Who we are?

In January 2018, a group of Greek family business owners created the national chapter of FBN International, an international not-for-profit membership organization “By Families, for Families, across generations”. FBN Greece was founded to create a safe environment where families could get together and address their challenges and share their experiences in order to foster the sustainability and growth of their family businesses.

Mission

Acknowledging the importance of family businesses in the Greek economy, our mission is to create a safe space for business owning families where they get:

Support:

They exchange experiences and best practices in a trusted environment, with others who share exactly the same issues, in order to address particular challenges of families in businesses and be successful and sustainable for future generations.

Education:

They have access to the most relevant and exclusive research initiated on a local as well as international level and get education through cutting edge conferences and programs.

Connections:

They develop both a national and international network of business owning families.

By supporting business families, we advocate positive change for the Greek economy.

Values

FBN Greece shares the same values on a local and international level

The Network is founded on the principles of open communication and trust.

Active participation by the members is the ingredient that makes the Network valuable.

Members are committed to sharing experiences and insights in an atmosphere of confidentiality.

Discussions and debates are always conducted in a respectful and professional manner.

The Network is not a place to sell services and products to other members. It is a forum to learn from exchange of ideas, experiences and information.

FBN-International

Representing more than 70% of the global GDP (according to latest statistics produced by Family Firm Institute), family firms play a very important role in the global economy. Hence their success and sustainability over time is crucial.

That said, family businesses are unique. Irrespective of their size, industry or generational phase, they face common challenges and shared issues such as:

  • how to sustain the company over generations
  • how to successfully pass the baton to the next generation or
  • how to ensure effective governance.

With the aim to enable successful and sustainable business families across generations, FBN International was founded in 1989 in Lausanne, Switzerland. FBN met with success and expanded rapidly to become the world’s leading family business organization. It is an international not for profit membership organization, led “By Families, for Families”.
Today (2018) it has 12.566 active family members in 33 Chapters covering 65 countries in Europe, Asia-Pacific, North and Latin America.
