To become one of the leading HUBs for family enterprise knowledge creation and next generation training
As part of the Telfer School of Management, our institute is proof positive of the school’s commitment to using business insights to inform the development of a better Canada and a better world. The better our country becomes at understanding and supporting family enterprise, the more dynamic and stable our economy will become.
At the core of our institute is a fundamental belief in the need to elevate and engage the next generation of enterprising families in new ways that will activate their true potential. There is an enormous untapped entrepreneurial potential in Canada’s economy, just waiting to be activated. By encouraging and supporting relationships between new entrepreneurs and their elder generations, we will empower both the legacy of new and established family enterprises, as well as a wave of Canadian innovation.
To empower the next generation of enterprising families
Our top priority is developing and sharing the knowledge, as well as the practices needed to effectively enable the next generation of family enterprise leaders to thrive, specifically through three areas of focus:
Creating a Forum for Learning and Practice
Providing a Safe Place
