Legacies that last: Sustaining values in the Next Generation

  • Andrew Keyt, Executive Director of the Family Business Centre at Loyola University Chicago’s Quinlan School of Business.

In a world that celebrates the dot com millionaire, and businesses that are created just to sell, it is more important than ever to understand the lasting legacies that family businesses have had as the foundation of our communities and the world economy. Family capital is still the primary funding source for entrepreneurship and family businesses, still create the bulk of new jobs in our economy. This session will explore the lasting legacies that families leave on their communities and how the long-term approach of family ownership impacts the cultural, economic, and social lives or our communities.
