Our Mission 

The Family Business Alliance believes that a healthy business also makes for a healthy family. For 20 years, our mission is to be the trusted resource providing world-class services to empower regional family-owned businesses. We accomplish this through educational programs, networking, counsel and guidance so that success is achieved for the community. It is important work: family-owned businesses account for two thirds of all businesses around the world according to John Davis of Harvard Business School. Family Businesses are a crucial piece in our regional economy and in the lives of their families and employees.
