Abstract: Enterprise and entrepreneurship are well-known phenomena that have their history of research and development of over 300 years. However, family business and family entrepreneurship are still under-researched subjects in the literature of economics and management in both developed and developing countries. Based on the study of management literature on family business, both in research and in practice, this article is an attempt to construct a theoretical framework to be used in a comparative empirical analysis of family businesses, their familial character in the context of different Vietnamese communities, at home and overseas. As a result of research and analysis, similarities and differences of those family business groups are revealed to draw interesting conclusions and to propose recommendations for business environment and authority to help this specific kind of business activity to prosper and better perform in the future.

Keywords: family business; family entrepreneurship; Vietnam; Poland.
