Family Business Corner
Family businesses are crucial to our economy in terms of creating jobs, generating wealth and building community. There are 5.5 million family-owned businesses in the U.S. They account for 57% of the GDP and employ 63% of the U.S. workforce according to Family Enterprise USA. An astounding 95% of family-owned businesses are engaged in philanthropy. We hope you will use the Family Business Corner to exchange ideas about family business.
