Family business is a driving force in economic development worldwide. It constitutes a whole range of enterprises whereby one or more family members exercise significant influence through leadership, control, participation, governance, investment, etc. Due to the emotional connection with the communities in which such businesses are launched, the family invests heavily in development of the region it calls home. IJFBRD expands understanding of family business and the relationship with regional development in different economies and countries from an interdisciplinary perspective.

  • Family business behaviour and regional development
  • Entrepreneurial skills and socio-economic growth
  • Cultural systems and regional development
