Ethel Brundin, Professor at Jรถnkรถping International Business School (JIBS), hosted the STEP meeting held at JIBS on 30 May. About 20 family business researches from distinguished European universities and business schools attended the meeting.
The purpose of the STEP meeting (Successful Transgenerational Entrepreneurship Practices) was to plan the coming European STEP summit that will be held in Crete in October this year. In October family business owners and researchers will be working together with the results from the STEP project.
The Global STEP Project is a research project that aims to investigate and understand how families and their businesses develop and transform entrepreneurial mind-sets and capabilities from one generation to another. The research is carried out in close collaboration with a large number of academics and family business owners and managers from around the world. STEP is currently active in Europe, Latin America and Asia-Australia. The US team is currently under formation. Timothy G. Habbershon at Babson College in Wellesley, MA, USA, founded STEP in 2005.
