For whom?

The Family Business programme focuses on teams of 3 − and preferably more − family members. We focus on large or medium-sized companies that are in the process of, or preparing for, transferring management to a new generation. Preferably, the team represents 2 (or more) generations and both sexes. Employment or current ownership is not a prerequisite for benefiting from the programme. From experience, we know that the participation of non-active family members (spouse, son or daughter) can be extremely valuable. Some families may also find it helpful to include a non-family CEO or advisor in the team.

Admissions procedure

You can propose your family’s candidature by contacting our Programme Manager, Jeroen Neckebrouck. We then invite you to an information meeting where we explain the programme in more detail. Admission takes place after a personal interview with the Programme Director and/or Programme Manager. During this interview, we verify your objectives and family situation in preparation for the programme and the coaching.

Participation means that the family commits to actively participating with several family members. Individual registration is not possible.

You are advised to register in a timely manner. Families are admitted on a progressive basis, and the group is tailored to enable active exchange.

  2. Flemish entrepreneurs are committed to contributing to a better society

    The image of entrepreneurship in Flanders could be a great deal better, especially in comparison with neighbouring countries. This is why the Flemish government agency Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship, with the support of Flanders DC, Voka, and Unizo, is starting a multi-annual campaign to show that Flemish entrepreneurs have diverse and palpable motivations. What’s more, they often go into business to make a positive impact on their own living environments, or on society as a whole. The campaign is based on the first scientific study into the social aspects of entrepreneurship in Flanders
