"Sharing family business knowledge around the world" -- creating a publicly available resource for family businesses around the world.


To be the "Wikipedia" and "LinkedIn" for family business -- the first-stop global resource for knowledge and links to other resources and people in family business.

Guiding Principles

1. Provide recognition to those who add to Family Business Wiki -- and in that way encourage the creation and editing of pages.
2. Remain "brand neutral" -- not identifying with or aligning with specific family businesses, family business advisors, or centers for family business.
3. Keep costs low by utilizing volunteer efforts to build and maintain articles.
4. Use limited advertising on the Wiki to cover costs.
