Family Business Day

The Foundation for Family Businesses and Politics is the specialist authority for all questions related to family companies and the central contact partner for political leaders and the media. It regularly conducts events with business, scientific and political experts. The foundation’s most widely known event is Family Business Day, which was held in 2008 for the first time. It serves as a forum at which members of the business, scientific, political and media communities can discuss global develop-ments and technological advances. Family Business Day was organised by the Foundation for Family Businesses through 2021. In 2022, the Berlin-based Foundation for Family Businesses and Politics became the organiser and host of this traditional summit of the shareholders of major family businesses. A few images from the event:
