For those involved in or with family business
Does the Network offer business advice?
No, nor does it endorse any sources of business or family advice. A number of members do also act as consultants. For some, this is their full time job. For others, consultancy forms a small part of (for example) a University post. These roles are completely separate from the Alliance.
Aren't there already lots of family business organisations?
There are some organisations, but their primary focus tends to be on businesses. We aim to provide a focus for researchers and educators who are interested in family businesses in the UK.
Does the Networkprovide research funding?
No, there is no research funding available through this route. There is, however, access to a network of colleagues with similar research interests who might be interested in collaborative bids for research funding. That network can also help with the development of 'emergent' research themes which are not yet developed enough to be the focus of a major funding bid but which are of interest to members.
