TheESADE Alumni Balearic Islands Clubis pleased to invite you to this Refresher Programme session entitled ''The family business in 2040'', a talk byAlberto Gimeno (Lic&MBA 84/PhD 99), ESADE’s General Management and Strategy Department and Director of ESADE’s Family Business Lab.
The world seems increasingly unpredictable. That suggests a time of transition to new models for society and business – a shift that could easily happen over the next 25 years, not slowly over a century. Technology, geopolitics and institutions will all change. Family firms, the dominant form of business, have a responsibility and an opportunity to be agents of this transition. What does this mean for today's notions of business ownership and family structure? How can family businesses stay close to scientific and societal innovations and benefit from them?
