Written on 20 June 2016.


The Family Business Network is a nonprofit international network that is run by family businesses, for family businesses, with the aim of strengthening success over generations. With over 8,500 individual members across 58 countries, the FBN has developed a network of next generation leaders of over 3,000 young family business owners.

In this context, the FBN runs the “Next Generation Award”, which champions young family business members who contribute to renew and energize their family business. To offer world-class family business education to the winner, EDHEC Family Business Centre is happy to collaborate with the FBN-I for the 2016 edition as academic partner.For the 2016 edition, the NxG Award winner will be announced at FBN Global Summit in Suzhou, China – 2-5 November 2016.

The NxG Award winner will be generously offered to:

  • participate in the world-class leadership programme DRIVE (acronym for Development, Responsibility, Integrity, Vision and Excellence) at the Royal Military Academy of Sandhurst in the UK,
  • personalized coaching sessions with EDHEC Experts and
  • Peer-group learning sessions (also proposed to the finalists!)

Finally, the winner will have the opportunity to take advantage of an exceptional FBN-EDHEC scholarship of €15000 to finance part of the tuition fees for the EDHEC Family Business Global EMBA, the first EMBA for Family Business Leaders in Europe.  The family is the first institution I go to when facing doubts. Plus, having people who understand that creating a business takes time, dedication and a bit of craziness, and who believe that there is actually a new market to create, is an unbelievable relief and support.
