Staying relevant in family business requires innovation and entrepreneurship. Multi-generational companies often look nothing like the business the founder established. But with the weight of history and legacy, innovating is challenging. This webinar will look at that balancing act and how family-owned companies can foster a spirit of entrepreneurship that will help insure the business’ future.
