Why the Family Business Network?

As the leader of your business, you’re responsible for your family’s legacy. Without proper planning and education, 70% of first generation family businesses fail to make a successful transition to the second generation. The success rates get worse with each generation.

The Family Business Network (FBN) is an exclusive network of top leaders positioning their businesses for success across generations. The FBN provides a forum to address the unique issues presented in family-owned businesses, and to acquire the tools necessary to ensure long-term success.

The Inaugural Family Business Network Summit will be held February 21-23, 2018, at The Cloister at Sea Island, GA and is open to FBN members and their spouse/invited guest.

Matt Cohen, President - Replenex, Inc.
